Around the House

After the Storm

Hurricane Charlie has come and gone without doing much damage (thankfully). Dixie’s house lost some shingles, but that’s the only damage I’ve found. I did go running after the trash barrel before it blew into someone else’s yard, but damage was averted in that case.

We got a lot of rain. The back yard and ditches flooded as expected. What we didn’t expect was that the road flooded too. It looked like we had a river at the end of our driveway for a little while.


For a while a little bird took shelter at the bank near our front ditch. It sat there and peeped for a while before disappearing. We’re not sure if it got blown away or decided the wind was calm enough to fly.
