All good vibes greatly appreciated!
It's pretty much over here in Maryland. This house is safe, though without power for 26 hours. Falling pine trees and overhead power lines do not mix well. Satellite dishes need power to connect to the interweb. Temperature dropped inside to 56 F. Practiced my cooking skills over a hurricane lamp
and curled up with the cat under lots of blankets.
Other house is different story. Lost 60+ foot pecan tree in front yard, thankfully fell away from the house. Entire property flooded (11 acres); all Mate can see surrounding the house is water, the tops of shrubs, and woods across the road and surrounding marsh. Most of the marsh is underwater, too. Last night water reached within 8 inches of the first floor. Garage had 6 inches of water inside (not enough to damage tractor or SUV, yay). High tide was 2 hours ago, but the wind is still driving water ashore down there, so not out of the woods yet. No power of course, no phone, and iffy cell reception. Surrounding roads all underwater, and most county roads still closed.
Main thing, though, is we are both safe. My heart goes out to all who lost lives in this! And hang on for those still in its path!
