Just to give everyone an update…
We are safe and sound here in PA where I live. Thank you all so much for the Tweets, etc. asking about myself and my family.
It was a strange night.
The storm ripped through Jersey into PA but for us, we only had rain and some wind. Then came some serious torando warnings – including touchdowns in Deleware that scared me a little. For the first time in my life, the emergency system took over my TV and cable box telling me about the tornado warnings.
So I stayed up while my family slept.
I had the pleasure of talking with a few friends via Twitter who live in Philly to make sure they were okay – and to give me a hint of what’s coming.
And while my area was under a tornado warning, nothing happened.
I fell alseep after the warning expired but set my phone for 2:30am to go off. When it did, I checked everything. Life was good so I went back to bed.
At 3:30am, we lost power. We wouldn’t get it back until 7am.
All in all, a few branches fell from the trees.
Considering what could have been, I’m lucky.
So in one week we’ve had an earthquake, a hurricane, and tornados. Can we please just bring in fall? I’m ready for leaves falling, cold nights, carved pumpkins… and book sales!
