Update

No power. No phone. No cell service. No Internet.  Quick update from Starbucks. The horses are enjoying their stay at the luxury horsie hotel, aka my neighbor's barn. They may not want to come home, but I hope that we will be able to get them back tomorrow. I hate looking out the window and not seeing Silk lift her head to meet my gaze.

We lost our 70 year old huge pine tree in the front yard. Luckily, it fell away from the house. Otherwise, some big branches down and another pine tree near the barn - it is in my neighbor's yard and fell towards her property. If it had gone the other way, it would have taken out Siete's stall. So, I'm very happy that we decided to move the girls.

Wondering how long it will take the utility companies to find us this time around......

Glad you're all ok. We are too. Just blocked in by trees on either side of driveway across the road. Downed power lines too. The crews are working now to get us out. We're literally trapped in the house. No phones, Internet, power of any kind. Working off cellular on my iPad. All horses and dogs are fine too. Lots of downed trees and some fencing. Hang in there!

So glad you're all OK and hope everything's back to normal soon.

Did the barn get flooded? Hope the girls can come home tomorrow.

Sad about your old Pine...but so very happy to hear that you, your horses and your home are unharmed. What a disaster this storm has caused!! Keeping everyone on the East side in my prayers.

Yahoo!!! We have internet again - no power yet. Phone and cell are back. I'll write more tomorrow.

Thanks for all your concern and good wishes.

The most important is that you are safe and sound and made the wise decision to move your girls to safer ground. It will take some time but we will come back.
