Just a little check-in here to tell you all that we appear to have survived. To be honest, I slept through a lot of the storm. I think the main forces of it passed to the east of us and those people are the ones to worry about now. It's almost up to Georgia at this point, but weakening.
We had some rain and some big winds and everyone's power is out in the area. Of the kids, only Jessie has power. Our generator is purring right along though and we are in fine shape. That branch in the picture above fell just a few hours ago. It's a water oak branch and we should have taken that tree out years ago. It landed on the power line that leads from the road to our house but the power was already out when it fell so...
I'm sure there are more branches down. I've heard a few go. But nothing on the house and all is well.
I'll check back in tonight.
