Just had some big nasty storms blow through our area. Hubby herded us all down to the basement after a whacking huge tree branch landed at the edge of our patio. Luckily nothing else happened except for the circut breaker tripping. Tomorrow we will check out the rest of the complex.

Heading off to bed soon...

We were very lucky considering how many people lost power in the area and how many had trees come through their roofs. The buildings themselves are good solid brick, but we have the big glass patio doors where the branch landed, and my older daughters room has huge windowsa that take up almost an entire wall. The kids asked how come we are always lucky, I asked if they would prefer it if we were not so lucky...

How have you been?

Honestly, I'm not doing so good. I had a bad day this week where I couldn't get out of bed. I've been in a lot of pain and just exhausted all the time. Plus depression and anxiety hitting me pretty hard. Panic attacks. The first anniversary of Rascal's passing is at the first of next month, too, and it feels like it happened yesterday. I still feel enormously guilty about it. I handled it completely wrong, both for him and for me. I spend most days feeling like I want to crawl out of my skin -- and snap at everyone who dares come near me.

Ugh. Sorry for spewing that all at you.

No need to be sorry, sometimes you just have to get things out of your system. Just let me know if there is anything I can do or if you just want to talk.

*hugs 'panda & kids*

I was worried that storm might hit you folks too. Like you, we lucked out; didn't even lose power in our end of town. Up the hill at the church, on the other, the power went out and apparently the surge when it came back on blew the circuit breakers and caused the electrical on the sewage pump to go bad.... can you say, 'sewage back up' in the drains? While the VBS kids are here? Currently waiting for the Electrical People to show.

Just have to remember not to flush until I get the 'all clear'!

Glad you guys are okay too! Oh, man, TIMING, though . . . is there a fast-food place nearby the kids can go to pee in the meantime? XD;;;

VBS kids got a unexpected field trip to the bowling alley; me, I can go home at lunch. But the repsir peeps are here now, and they actually have the correct parts, so it won't be long.

Glad you guys are all okay too, and that the repair guys have what they need. We walked around the neighborhood this morning and saw lots of branches down and one old tree split in half. Alot of homes in the downtown area did lose power

Hugs to all you guys.

Glad you made it through! Hope it's better today, for you and for selfish reasons. We're flying through your city today. Really hoping for no major delays...

I think today the airports are operating normally so you should be okay. Last night they did have delays and cancellations. Where are you heading to?

We are doing fine, watching the maintainence folks working on the downed branches. Radar is showing more storms nearby, but so far it's quiet.

Columbus, OH for Origins convention. After that, DC, PA, and NY. :)

NY? Anywhere near Syracuse? Most of my family is there, with a few scattered in PA, CT, MA and FL.
