We have had our share of fallen trees, crushed fences and flooded basements. We brace for every storm knowing there will be repairs to be made and we will have to find some way to budget the costs. We hid out in the basement on Monday, watching the news, watching the lights flicker and checking water levels in the new sump pump. The wind rattled the windows and swayed the largest trees. Bits of leaves stuck to the windows.

The basement did not flood, the power did not fail and this time we have no damage to repair. Everyone I know is safe. For all of this I am very thankful.
