Ok, it's been a crap day, over all. But yes it could have been worse. We have survived the storms so far. Our bottom floor of the house has not fared so well, but i am being optimistic. Mostly because i cannot deal with the stress of being a pessimist. Can you say flooded out from the storm? Now the carpet, padding etc all sit out in the rain on the back porch, half our property is under water as are both neighbors, we have a rather large sink hole just down the road...many schools are already cancelled for tomorrow and 70+mph winds are still due in...kind of nervous bout that as the ground is saturated and we do have 200 foot trees surrounding us. But my surgery is set for the 19th...must get the menu and all other things prepped and ready for xmas as well!
I posted this pic of our xmas village. We have a new piece just put out yesterday, a log lodge, but it is so nice to look at and dream. After 12+ xmas's in hawaii with no snow this village reminds of our old new england xmas's and life in a small town where everyone knows your name!
