Still fine here - 6:20 am. Rain is not as heavy as during the middle of the night, and the wind is not as extreme as it may become still. Still have power: maybe we will keep it! Wouldn't that be great. We kitties just got our breakfast. Yum!
Mom heard a couple of branches falling down in the night - one hit the house, but it is still too dark to see exactly what they look like.
While being relieved that we came through the night OK, our hearts go out to other people impacted by flooding of their homes with all this rain. We are fortunate that our house is on a hill, and is built fairly high, so our basement is still OK. But record amounts of rain are causing a lot of flooding, and probably more to come with rising rivers. We are watching the tv News, anxious about the storm surges in New York as well.
Sweet story about Dad and the hummingbird(s): he waited till it was almost dark before taking down the last feeder. Just after he did so, the little hummer showed up for a feed in the rain. So he went back on the deck and put the feeder out until it was truly totally dark. Mom and dad watched the feeder from the kitchen table and saw the birdie come back a couple more times for a long drink. I wonder how she sheltered fro the night.
