Remnants of Fred Knock our Power Out

Wind and rain from what is left of Tropical Storm Fred hit us, knocking over trees and some power lines. As a result, I won’t be posting much until we are back up and running.

Our preps have held up just fine, and we’ve checked on two neighbors who are also OK. After 6 hours, we cranked up the generator and extension cords are keeping our fridge, freezer, and a few lights running. No Internet access, however. We had to go to town to respond to texts and email.

A good reminder that a local emergency is more likely to hit than a global one, but they are both disruptive.

Be safe, everyone.
