Luckily we escaped with no damage at all, and we didn't even lose power. It's been a very rainy morning and afternoon however, and the rain just stopped recently. The last I heard Hanna was now moving through Virginia and on its way up the Atlantic coast.
I'm not too big of a fan of large storms anymore. I was excited to see my first hurricane when I first moved down here, but the first one I saw was a bust. That was Bertha in August of 1996. Twelve years ago today, on September 6, 1996, Hurricane Fran hit and it was a monster. I even used to have an infrared satellite image of it hanging on my apartment wall just as a reminder of how awful it was.
It struck me as odd that we had such a large, if non-lethal storm move through here today on that anniversary, but I guess stranger things have happened.
Regardless, we are safe and sound, the yard is starting to dry out a bit, and we're going to have to replace a bunch of mulch.
Have a great Saturday folks.
