I got off easy in the big storm, although I did just notice that a large part of one of my lilac bushes in the back yard is on the ground. I suppose that is better than a tree limb on my house!
I never lost electricity and though the rain and wind were scary, there was no damage to my property, other than the lilac bush.
My dogs managed to bring out my sense of humor in those horrifying moments. The rain was coming down in torrents. The dogs needed to go out. We got to the door and Morgan, my 3 month old puppy, refused to go out. No way! Molly braved the elements, did her business, then turned to look at me and just stood there looking at me. I'm trying my best to get her to come inside out of the downpour and all she does is stand there looking at me.
Morgan would look at her and then look up at me. As frustrated as I was at Molly, it was funny.
Over 20,000 people in Monroe County lost power and about 2500 people living along the Lake Ontario shoreline were told to leave. During the night I heard sirens that sounded close by. Thankfully, I escaped all that trauma!
