the aftermath

I guess I was lucky. TXU Electric Delivery says our Tuesday and Wednesday evening storms (wind, rain, thunder) were the most damaging in their 100 year history. They say about 500,000 homes were without power. There were stories in the DMN about multi-hundred year old trees being uprooted in the parks throughout the area. Certainly, many homeowners also lost large trees, or portions thereof. Good thing (?) it wasn't a tornado, huh?

I noticed 2.5 inches of rain in the gauge, and some dead limbs (no green growth) littered across the yard, but no major damage here. Beta (the wonder dog) didn't want to venture into the storm, and thoughtfully made her deposit just outside the back door.
