Tropical Storm Hanna came ashore right on our little town of Calabash, NC. It was a lot of rain & a lot of wind, but we didn't get any damage. Unless you count the soreness I'm gonna get in my muscles from raking all the pine needles, pine cones & little branches from the yard!
She came ashore about midnight, and I have to admit that I slept through most of it. There was some heavy rain before I went to bed, and I woke up a couple of times in the night hearing the wind whip around the house. We were lucky and never even lost power. I know that there were quite a few that did. Even though there was a lot of water in the yard when I went to bed last night we've been so dry here that it was all soaked up by the time we got out and about this morning. So now it's just a matter of cleaning up the yard. We are very thankful that is all we have to do.
I just wanted to let everyone know that we were all okay here & no damage. Thank you to everyone who sent messages of well wishes & worry for me & mine. I hope that everyone else in the path of Hanna fares as well as we did.
Now to struggle with putting the knitting down & finding that rake!
