Wind Storms

We are without internet and most of the people we know are without electricity–and will be for several days at the very least.  We had huge wind storms last night that slammed our poor old windows against the house (those old metal framed type from the early 50’s), took down multiple trees, including part of one in our driveway, and took out the power for most of our area.  I am writing from my mom’s house (she is the only person we know with both electric AND internet.)  Not sure when we will get back online.  Photos later.

Lightening

We had a freak lightening storm which sent a power surge through our house knocking out all the outlets in the kitchen AND killing our router.  I am basically offline until we get a new router unless hubby lets me plugin to HIS network cable so i can hop on while he is gaming.

Finished setting up the yard sale, need sleep, wiped out from long day setting up, dealing with Rachel’s lightening flash induced migraine (no seizure, praise the Lord), dealing with all the crazy electrical problems we are discovering as a result of the house being hit by lightening.  Hubby wants his internet back so I will be back as soon as possible.
