I'm surprised that the Centerville police weren't out ticketing debris for going over 55 on the Legacy Parkway

We FINALLY got power on about 3:00 today (Sun)!! Four days without, man it was cold! We feel very fortunate that we have friends on the west side of town who just moved into a bigger house & put us & another family up. My poor dogs had to stay home & freeze though.

Two amazing things: I was shocked at the damage! I stopped counting BIG trees that were down. Almost as much fencing down as was up. Trampolines all over the place. Hot tub huts crushed to bits. Three east-facing neighbors' houses had half or MORE of their roofs stripped. One neighbor lost ALL the siding on the east side of the house.

The clean up. Wow!!!! It wasn't surprising to see so many helping others. The organization in which it was done was really something else. My "ward" was particularly bad...neighboring wards called short their church meetings & went out to do clean up. And my ward met for sacrament & a neighboring ward MADE US DINNER. ALL of us.

Now I am hoping the storm predictions for tonight dissipate!!

Lola, so glad you didn't have more damage. I'm sure your dogs were fine out of the wind. I've seen the TV reports of the garbage dump/trees and it is amazing. I saw a collection point, not the real dump, about 3 months after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and the pile was more than 2 stoires high and at leat a mile long. Winds are really hard on everything.
