High Wind Advisory...

What is up with Ohio and 70mph winds? OMG! Have you ever tried to walk 2 miles in pouring rain and 70mph winds? IT'S A BLAST! I know, who knew?

My daughter and I were on a 2 mi walking path when the storm hit full force...about 1/4 mile in...and we could turn around, or keeping going...we kept walking! Talk about resistence training! We were laughing so hard we were in tears and so soaked through that water was dripping off the tips of our noses...

And of course, thousands are again without power in Ohio (we're hanging in there at our house) but we did have to mount a search and rescue for our recycle bins and trash cans...ahem...we found them in the far side of the back forty...

Tomorrow will tell us if our roof made it through...

We were out the other day scouting out new and fairly-new deadfalls from the last big windstorm that hit back in September and found quite a few. I just know that number's gone up in the last few days, not to mention more than a handful of trees whose root balls just gave up the ghost thanks to the soggy soil. On the other hand, when high summer has burnt the grass down to smoking nubs, we'll look back on this time with fondness.
