Power Lines and Trees Down After Hurricane

We only got rain the past two days from the latest hurricane. Friends and family in other states got worse. They are all safe. But no power, trees down, and power lines down, making roads impossible to travel. Was up most of the night talking to scared friends and cousins during the eye of the storm. These storms are scary and even worse when they happen at night and the power goes out. You have no idea what is going on around you. I have experienced many in the past. Thankfully everyone is safe, so far. You never know what life will throw your way.

@CarolDM How are you and cats doing? It is very hard when the power goes out and you are not prepared and stumbling around in the dark to find a flashlight. I am glad you are safe.

No we don't know so we? You may want to edit the paragraph which talks about no power and make that a sentence by itself. I had to read it more than once thinking the no also went with the lines even though that's not what I gathered from your title. I'm glad everyone is safe. We had a tornado go through years ago and it uprooted two large trees on either side of our driveway putting our power out too.

I was glad Zeta was a fast moving hurricane especially after becoming much stronger than predicted at landfall. Didn't get too bad here in the panhandle though some lost power we didn't.

@CarolDM They weren't (once again) for the storm to get as strong as it did. It was supposed to hit land as a strong tropical storm or very low end hurricane Cat one not a real strong (Knocking on the door of Cat3) Cat two storm.

This was scary as it hit in unpredicted areas. Caught them off guard. But they are safe thankfully.

My family is in Oklahoma and many have been without power for days. Not sure if it is hurricane related or just general bad fall weather.

Happy to hear that you and Brendel and The Dude are safe and sound. We rarely have full blown hurricane here in Canada. But we often have the tail end of the US hurricanes and just those are just as bad....

I watched news coverage of the hurricane (primarily from Biloxi) until I went to sleep. It was pretty rough. Poor Louisiana. I have friends who live there, and I've asked them (they've lost power twice due to hurricanes), "Hey, whatever dance you're doing that's bringing the hurricanes, STOP!!!!"
