October. . . . . .come to the fair

As I write, the 2018 North Carolina State Fair is opening.

This should have happened yesterday but a visit from 
Hurricane Michael postponed the celebration.
Fortunately nothing was blown down, or away, as far as I know.
Today the sun is shining and the temperature is comfortable. . . .
. . . . .I'm sure opening day will be a good one.

We are still here, surrounded by yet another mess to be cleaned
 up over the weekend once the garden dries out. 
Power blinked off and on for a while, our landline was knocked out,
but we were grateful the tornado watch only lasted a few hours.
The wind was terrifying and rain torrential off and on for 
several hours.
The falling debris was only small branches with a lot of 
twigs, acorns and leaves.  For a while we had a creek running
 through the garden. 
Compared to parts of Florida hit so hard and with so much 
devastation, we have been lucky. . . . . . but come on Mother Nature,
don't you think the southeast has had enough for one year!

    1. You are so kind - thanks so much. It was another frightening storm - so sad for Florida.

  2. So happy to hear it was only small branches for you. You were in my thoughts. Thanks for the update.

  3. Mary, I couldn’t believe when I read you’ve had another hurricane in North Carolina.
    It must be frightening with the strong winds in the trees.
    Good news that you’re both safe and the clean up wasn’t too onerous.😘


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
