well, we got dumped on again, but the wind thing was a little bit 'overblown', at least for our area. it was a little bit windy when i went to bed last night (just before 1), but nothing major.
we did wake up with our power out, but there was also a utility truck parked RIGHT in front of our house, with a dude in a cherry picker fixing the lines.
i guess a branch fell out of the neighbor's tree and knocked out the power to 17 houses. but we survived and were up and running and able to turn on the heat (and the coffee pot) by 7:45am.
it's hard to see, but this is the utility truck out front of our house. and here are all 3 kids watching the utility truck out the window. and the results of our most recent dump. the climber on the left has snow filling it about half-way up. that bump is the sandbox.
