It’s been pretty sunny and hot here this past week, but before that, we had a lot of rain. Here is one of those days in pictures:
If you’ve been wondering what happened to all the updates this last while – it’s been a busy and eventful week and a bit! We started it all off with a great big storm (hurricane force gusts! whee!), we got power back just in time for Alex and Emma to visit for a bit (yay to both!), then Justin had his allergist appointment, I got sick and Chad’s computer died (boo to all three).
I’ll start at the end and say that Justin is still allergic to the things he was allergic to before, Chad’s new battery is on it’s way, and I’m feeling better already! Prior to that, we had a fantastic time showing Alex and Emma around Salem and Boston. And before all that, there was the storm…
The storm was pretty crazy – our house felt like it was sitting on a water bed at times! Gusts were up over 90 miles per hour and we woke up to tree and roof debris all over the yard, but we were spared serious damage with only a small fence crushed by a tree branch (the roof bits weren’t ours). Our power was out for just short of 48 hours, though, so we spent a night in a hotel and had to restock our refrigerator. Luckily, our little gas fireplace kept the living room, well, livable, and we were able to stay in the house during the daytime. Here are some photos:
I don’t have any interior photos with our stuff in, but here are some pics of the outside:
If anyone wants to come visit, just send me an email – we love having guests!
We’re just heading out on our trip to PA… then it’s on to QC. A long trip for a little baby, but yay for visiting family! 🙂
