The main thing is that you made it through it. Property can be rebuilt or replaced Smile

Luckily there has been no damage to my house. I lost power for a little longer than a day.

Is it wrecked or just changed momentarily? Glad you are safe!

Glad you're OK, power for one day doesn't seem that unusual at all especially for a hurricane.

Shoot, only a day? We lost power for a day this past summer when all the A/C demand blew a transformer.



Just kidding - glad you are ok, Kevin. As someone else said, you can fix a roof or window, but not always a life.

Lose power for a day vs 75 days of 100+ degree, which do you prefer?

I know where I fall on this one! Smile

Ironically, as all this was happening in the east, it was 112 here yesterday - hottest day EVER recorded in Austin. Maybe 2012 IS the year....

Pretty big tree. What's on the other side of that? I'm happy to see that a hurricane like that didn't stop your run the next day







Hopefully the damage won't take long to repair.



Stay safe!

It sounds like you were pretty lucky to only be without power for one day. From what I have read, there are still thousands of people without power.

My town is still about 40% without power, and towns around us are more like 80% without power. Our house was spared. But my '97 Civic, which the kids drive, was not. See below!
