    Just figured I'd post up and see how you guys are fairing. I moved my 80 as far out from under the big oak in my back yard while staying on the driveway and I still had a branch fall on the roof and dent it. Not bad but still irritating. Otherwise, not too bad in my hood.

    Moved every tractor and piece of equipment out from under the trees at our place. Neighbor down the road did not.

    I parked my truck under our big oak tree.
    But you know my luck!
    No limbs fell on it!

    Power is still out and lost a big cedar. That’s it so far.

    Nothing too exciting to report. power flickered for a bit and I awoke this morn thinking someone was breaking into the back. Almost brought the chainsaw in the truck just in case, but trashcans were more of an obstacle than trees on the road.

    Don’t give her any ideas. She’s already got me booked solid with Honey Dos.

    Several trees and big limbs fell in the woods; even got to watch a few go down. No damage and power only went out briefly in the early morning.

    Neighbor lost 4 trees. One came down and brought 3 others with it. Fortunately only their fence was damaged. Had they fallen in the opposite direction both their house and mine would have been severely damaged. Lucked out.

    We lost a big tree in the back yard, and a medium sized one at the shop.

    Still no power and from the looks of Rapahannock Electric’s outage map it could be June before we have power.

    Everyone in our community, besides our little HOA, lost power. Since our houses are relatively new, all the lines are undergound. The traffic lights all down West St. were out too.

    The outdoor NHL hockey game is being played tonight at the Naval Academy Stadium about 1 mile from my house. It looks like they are going to have to take wind into effect on slap shots.
