Over half a million people in our area have been without power since then. We were among the fortunate minority. We kept our power, only losing cable, phone, and internet. We lost some flashing on the roof and had lots of huge limbs come down, but thanks be to the Lord, no trees fell on our house. Many roads are blocked, there's a shortage of gas, and grocery stores that are open are running on generators and are short on refrigerated goods.
I'll post more details later, but for now I just want to say we have so much to be thankful for. My prayers go out to everyone who was affected by the storm, especially those who were truly hit hard down on the coast.
