First off, if you missed it, I did a guest post on Monday over at Betsy Transatlantically.  Go check it out.  Betsy is awesome.

Second off, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!  I hope you all have a wonderful, safe evening.  And take care of those black cats.  Poor fuzzy guys are always in danger on Halloween.

My house and I (and the cats) survived the storm unscathed.   I lost a few limbs from the big tree in the front yard, but they seem to have fallen straight down and not into my car or my house.  Just down the street, a large tree fell on a house and ended up doing serious damage to that house as well as to the house next door.

I lucked out and kept both power and cable through the storm, which meant that I was warm and safe and glued to the storm coverage.  My heart goes out to everyone in the areas much more hit than my area and I hope that everyone reading this is safe.

Before the storm hit, my mom reminded me that it’s all just stuff, what mattered was that I stayed safe.  And while I totally agree with her, I also didn’t want a tree on my house.  My car, well that was an easy fix.  Expensive, but easy.  The house, less so.  Of course, mostly what I wanted was for everyone to be safe.

I’m worried about the houses I pass on my running route.  I run through a very beautiful, very wooded area, and every time there are storms, big trees come down.  I just hope none came down on houses.  I may be able to get out there this weekend to check it out.  It sort of depends on whether or not my race on Saturday gets cancelled.  Time to wait and see.
