My neighbor lost some large branches on one of his trees, but they didn't hit anything.
One of my friends sent me a picture of a very large, mature tree that fell at one of the local schools. What a shame.
Until I came to a tree blocking the road ...
Okay, can't go that way. Let's go to Plan B ... Nope!
Okay, Plan C. Nope. (Trees down on wire, road closed, but no picture of that one.)
Okay, Plan D ... No again!
Fortunately, Plan E worked ... because there was no other way to get where I was going! I was expecting the power to be out when I arrived, but it wasn't, and we were able to have a pleasant meal.
A few hours later I had to make an emergency run to Walmart. I took a long, roundabout way there, avoiding all of the roads I knew were closed ... and hit another one I wasn't aware of! Luckily I know the city about as well as I know my own house, so I was always able to find an alternate route and my house never lost power. It was a bit frustrating, but all in all, I was very fortunate. Things could have been much worse ... and for a lot of people, they were.
