Well, we made it home. Didn't even run into traffic, either. I started to get really worried when we started seeing uprooted trees and such almost three hours before we were even supposed to get home. Amazingly, our house didn't sustain any damage at all. Not a shingle missing from the roof, no broken windows, nothing. I am so thankful. Not only is the house okay, but the power is back on, and even the internet is up and running again. There is quite a bit of cleaning up that's going to need to happen outside over the next couple of days, and a few fences that need to be fixed, but nothing too terribly big. We feel very blessed. I want to walk through the neighborhood and take some more pictures tomorrow. For now, here's what our house and yard look like.
The front of the house, with some shingles from the neighbor's roof in the front yard. The trees lost a lot of leaves. One of the broken fences.
The place where our shed used to be. If all the pieces are still there, we may be able to put it back together.
My garden, of course. I know you were all wondering. Well, I know Kaleb was. :p One tomato weathered the storm, amazingly. Considering just down the street, there were huge trees uprooted, I'm just in awe that these plants are still up. We found the other three tomatoes. I'm going to put them out in the sun every day, maybe they'll still turn red. Three watermelons survived, too. Can you believe it?
Can you find all three watermelons?
