We were lucky!

A *lot* of people lost power - even my parents, who live only a few streets away!  We were very lucky.

Right now my parents and their neighbour are moving a tree from the property line that fell right on my parent's vegetable garden - right on the tomatoes!  Oh no!  It damaged the yard fence, the garden fence, and tore the clothesline right off the post!  Yikes.  We didn't lose any trees, ourselves, we're lucky.

Dave's mom also lost power, but since she lost virtually all her trees to Juan a few years back, there probably won't be too much damage.

So, Earl did give us a pretty good punch!  But they hope to have the power back within a couple days, so it won't be another Juan, for sure. *phew*
