Hurricane Hermine, or the remains of it, came through a week or so ago. We were lucky. First, it came ashore as only a category 1 storm. Then, by the time it got to us, it was mostly high winds and rain. Not too bad. Our power went out but only for about four hours, though some houses were out longer. And we only had small debris in our yard while others had trees down. Some pix:

Fence and telephone wires down
The awning on a convenience store was blown down. This is right next to our favorite Southern Soul barbecue which wasn't harmed, thank goodness! We can still eat!
So now that Hermine is gone, a lot of people are deciding to take care of trees that might fall and do some damage.

The only tree we had that might have hurt the house, partly fell a couple of years ago and we had it taken out then. So we feel pretty safe. I'm just hoping any other hurricanes are as mild!
