Weathering the storm...

"It's just like when we go camping."

The words of reassurance we told to Lexi as we cooked our dinner in the fondue pot by candle light and prepared to "camp out" in the living room as a family to finish riding out Saturday's storm. We feel blessed that we're safe, our friends are safe, and that the community has pulled together to clean up the mess and take care of those still in need of basic utility services. We were lucky to have only experienced a 12 hour power outage that we weathered pretty well with games, a movie on the laptop, and camp out cooking that included s'mores. Our yard as you can see in the photos is a mess with downed tree limbs (and a full tree in the front yard), but our house made it through without any damage.

Driving through town is sad. Many of the community's big old trees have sustained some sort of damage, though amazingly enough you see very little damage to cars and houses. Unfortunately there are still those in tow…

My loves...

My wish for you for this Valentine's Day...that you are as fortunate as I to be surrounded by those you love.

peace...& love
