Feeling very blessed today. We weathered the storm without much damage to our house. We were very lucky Michael turned slightly to the north east. We were on the left (west) side so our sustained winds and gusts were blowing south. We lost some siding from the front of the house. My son called to tell us his fence fell. But all the family is safe that is the main thing. We were blessed. Thanks everyone for your prayers.
We will check for any other damage today. The towns east of us had lots of trees down. All the towns had curfews to keep people off the roads. We don't have tall trees and our power lines are under ground. I was worrying about the trees behind our house. The trees were dancing in those winds. The wind gusting was really scary. I called all my family to let them know we were okay.
Now back to life's other problems. We are going to try to figure out something a plan to help the sisters. My sister-in-law has dementia. The sister caregiver is at her wits end. We are trying to help, but it is just so hard to see a vibrant, intelligent human lose their memory and their mind. I don't know how it will all work out, but we have to figure out something.
