Haven't blogged in a while - this is why.
This looks more dramatic than it was: Most severe damage was to a weeping cherry tree, moderate damage to the roof, gutters, soffit and part of vestibule glass wall. I have water and gas piped in from the street for cooking and heating and was able to bathe and cook during the power outage. Got a lot of odd cleaning done: silverware drawer, dresser top, linen closet, refrigerator. Also gathered the tsunami of leaves and branches over my entire yard. Met many of my neighbors for the first time (nice.)
At night, went to bed at 8:30 and listened to talk radio (crazy, crazy). Read my kindle and ate very little (this was the best outcome). All in all, got away scott free given the horrid stories from other areas.
Thanks everyone for your good wishes and concern.
