Just to let you know

We have been very fortunate here in Hampton Roads. I have not heard of any major power outages or casualties. That’s not to say that there wasn’t flooding because there was. Just a bit to the north, people were not so lucky. If you’re interested in reading the local assessment, click here.

In our house, everything is fine. The door weathered the wind. No big tree limbs. All in all, we were spared. Thanks to everyone who voiced concern.
