After the Storm

Our internet service was restored this morning, having conked out during Saturday’s storm here.  We had some wind and rain, but certainly nothing to give us any  hint of the devastation taking place east of us.

I am watching the news today with horror.

My sister, who lives east of Raleigh, is okay.  I spoke with her this morning.  No need to call my brother, who lives on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  He sent his okay message in the form of a photo.

    Your brother’s photo elicited a big WOW here. It is an incredibly beautiful sight. I’m glad you and DB didn’t have any damage, other than internet withdrawal, which is not at all serious.

  2. Super way to let you know all is well in his area! I spent Saturday night huddled around the TV watching as tornadoes jumped all around us… which is the operative word here, around. Thankfully, like you, they missed us completely. But my daughter Sandi was just outside Raleigh where she and some friends had attened the Renassiance Festival and a tornado hit just yards from where they were staying. She got the heck out of there as fast as was possible.

  3. Now that’s just bragging. *pout*


    Glad you are ok. We have snow on the ground. We have snow on the ground. Just need to say it twice in case you don’t catch it the first time… *sobs*

  4. Wow. Awesome picture. It always amazes me how the weather can wreck havoc and then paint such a beautiful picture–as in well-that’s over,

    Glad your family weather the storm and prayers for those that were not as lucky this time around,

  5. So glad to hear from you! I got a long report from Henny Red yesterday. Dear Raleigh, that good town; my heart hurts for them. Keep an eye on that Weather Channel, girl.

  6. I was wondering about my various blogging friends living in NC, and other parts in the south where the storm roared through.
    The sunset photo is breathtakingly lovely. Taken post-storm?

  7. Glad to hear that everyone is safe. We felt that storm come across Florida panhandle heading east. I saw on TV some of the destruction that was caused by this storm. Did they count 209 tornadoes reported-wow!! I heard that on NPR this afternoon.

    Sending positive thoughts your way.
