I'm surprised we still have power, but we do. So far. We are "in the East," so we are being hit hard with this storm. I avoid the word "hurricane" because the kids flip out when they hear that.
So far a ton of wind. Nothing down yet. We will not get flooded since we live at the top of a hill. But we are being pelted with sleet, rain, freezing rain. And the wind sounds like a train going by. Roaring. Our big concern is the trees up behind the house.
Our lower level is basement, thank GOD, because if needed we can all "hunker down" there and it will be safe and fairly comfortable. I cooked supper early so we are fed. Snacking can be cooking free.
School is cancelled for tomorrow and Wed on a 2 hr delay ALREADY.
Pray for our safety and for the others affected by this storm, okay?
Update--- still have power at 10 pm. Although it's flickering.
Everyone sleeping downstairs for safety reasons. Worried about those trees behind the house but so far only one down and not in our direction. Lots of rain. Still hearing the wind blow like a train roaring by, it's really strong.
All children are fed and tucked in for the night. Overnight is supposed to be the worst and then lessen as the day goes on tomorrow. Hearing reports of lots of trees down in the area, no one hurt locally that we know of. Many, many without power.
