Not 'Irma remnants strong' for this storm, but the night is young...

We are used to considerable wind speeds up here, but Irma was severe; almost 'Canes F & Ivan like.

We are tree surrounded, and the trees seem to brush off/absorb the steady 40-60s, but the gusts give them a serious workout. It will be branches, limbs and ankle deep leaf litter tomorrow when it slows down, but that is normal also. We all have one to several chain saws up here and we all get out of our coops and work on clearing our little private side roads and the main private road down our mtn.

No leaks in window wall today and while the house is rocking, it has stood up for 17+ years.

A drone shot of our joint on a normal summer day, and a nice sunrise view from our deck, looking E/SE...

Less severe than Irma's remnants, and by this morning it was like, "Ah, it has passed."

Only took a few hours to clear driveway, private road, et al.

1st Class forum here! A cell pano pic from this morning's sunrise from our deck, post usual morning trudge up the mountain...

Almost forgot to reply!
1st. WOW! You got my dream spot/home! You are one lucky person. Enjoy.
2. Awesome pics and Pano!
3. Glad to hear it wasn't bad.
4. Hope to see your posts more in the forum seasonal threads.
5. I am very interested in a few things now that we have you in the forum.

When do you typically feel the transition of Fall to Winter? That first "feels like its coming" saying.
When do you typically see the first snowfall?
Do you have a weather station there?
Have you been keeping track of weather from there?
