Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

    Yup, still kicking Dio !
    Storm eye came within thirty miles of the house. No damage to the house itself.
    Been busier than all get out, cleaning up all the debris though. So far, like ten heaping pickup loads of tree limbs and palm fronds ! I’ll tell ya what, that’s a lot of work for this old gimpy dude. Been just slowly picking at it.
    Had the top blow out of an oak tree, base of the branch is around a foot across and maybe fifty feet long with bunches of side branches. Reason I’m describing it…is that it is laying on top of my shop roof at the top end and the bottom part is hung up in the tree about fifteen foot up. Lot of weight there hanging n the air ready to hurt someone or something. Didn’t even come through the shop roof either. Guess the gods were watching out for me. Still scratching ma head just how to deal with getting it down. Slowly and carefully, fer sure…..
    My wind gauge recorded 80 to 100 average winds for around ten hours, with gusts to 120 mph. We lost power at 2:00 am Friday morning , but it came back on early Sunday morning. I’ve got a little Honda eu1000 generator, and it kept the freezer going lights and a fan. So we didn’t lose much food cept for the fridge stuff, which mostly we just pigged out on rather than waste it.
    We were extremely lucky ! It was a cat four when it went by here. Had it been twenty miles further west, we’d have lost everything most likely. Way to close.
    Hope I get a chance to rest up soon ! Been good exercise therapy for my broken up body…and was a good test of our preps.
    Working on getting that oak tree off the roof tomorrow….

    • ‘Round these parts, that limb would already be piled in someone’s wood shed. Wind storms are always followed by the sound of roaring stihls and husquies.
      Glad the bullet missed ya.
