It has been a crazy week after the storm. I've had about eight building inspections to do along with cranking out the report for each said building inspection. I'm tired of looking at moldy buildings.
I ran on Friday and Saturday in the Ike 20 mph winds. Holy Cow that was tough! It really slowed me down and my quads were burning from all the resistance. It made the run quite interesting though. Running through our neighbor's subdivision I saw one little, skinnly, lone pine tree in someone's front yard. Now, I know that pine trees are bendy and can withstand high winds, but this little thing was almost bent over at a 90 degree angle...RIGHT into the street where I was running. Talk about running FAST when I went near it.
As promised, here are some pics and video from Gustav that I've been meaning to post. Here it is pouring down rain on Monday morning. This was about two seconds before we lost power at 9:30 a.m. It's dark and dreary and rainy and windy and Sarah, the wonder-mutt, guardian-of-all-things-food-related was busy at her post. ("guarding" if you will, the two sacks of dog food we had just purchased.) Yup...I know how to train 'em.
I was very thankful for a few Items:
Our fabulous generator that kept our refrigerator, freezer and a couple of window units going.
Ahh.....sweet nectar of the gods and remover from the reality of how stinkin' hot and humid it is in the house.
Here is a video of the winds and rain....we had this for about two days straight.
Here is another video of the cloud movement. You can see the bands moving across the sky quickly. AND you can hear all the generators running in the background.
