This is a follow-up to my earlier article, “I May Be Off-line For a While” at https://eogn.com/page-18080/12933198 that I posted 3 days ago.
The hurricane has come and gone and it did not follow the track that the weather forecasters had predicted. (They included a disclaimer that hurricanes often change their tracks.)
I lost power about 10 PM last night as the wind and rain was steadily increasing. According to an online map on a local television station this morning, the eye of the hurricane passed through the town where I live around 2 AM. It is possible that the eye of the hurricane passed directly over my house but I don’t know that for a fact as I was asleep at the time.
This morning, I am still in the midst of the hurricane although obviously on the backside of it. The wind is presently about 40 or 50 miles per hour and it is still raining, but lightly.
Best of all, the power came back on about 9 AM. I am back in business!
A quick walk around the inside and outside of my home this morning shows no damage. Looking up and down the street I also don’t see any damage to my neighbors’ homes.
There is a small pond across the street from my house and this is the first time I have ever seen white caps on that tiny pond! Yes, the wind is still blowing.
All in all, it’s been an exciting couple of days but I don’t need excitement like this.
