Let's just say a transformer exploded on our block about two weeks ago leaving us without power. Then we left to visit my dad and stepmom in MINERAL, Virginia. That town sound familiar? It was the epicenter of the recent 6.0 earthquake in VA.....so broken glass, messes, no power, aftershocks. We come home to be struck by Hurricane Irene including tornado warnings, major flooding in our town, and once again no power for a few days.
The poor kids have barely slept in their own beds in the last week and a half.....we are wondering what next: plague of locusts or will the small mountain we live on erupt into a volcano??? We could definitely use some quiet peaceful times!
Below are just the pics from our Hurricane experience. We let the kids play outside when it first started raining and getting a little windy. You have to love Anna's self chosen get up!
here the water is coming right up to the footbridge.
just passed that black truck is all water..
this cracked me up. A picnic bench poking out of the water. This is around the municipal buildings and police station/municipal court.
You can hear how windy it still was and the creek that now looks like a lake. This is the parking lot for the county offices and court and downtown shopping area.
