You had a hurricane?
Played cards with the family during the outage?
Mostly stared off into the distance, desperately bored, and trying not to be upset.

Fourth time this year -so far- one has come in over Louisiana and passed near.  This was the first to still amount to a storm worth mentioning, here.  My ego is minorly wounded that no one saw anything on the news and noticed I'd not been on for over a day.

Tropical Storm, the one that hit New Orleans (Cat 2 Hurricane on Landfall).  It moved so fast that it was still fairly strong once it got to the BU Homestead in NC.

...Made it through the hurricane just fine, thanks for asking - though every time we go through an extended power outage, we're profoundly reminded how much our lifestyles don't work without electricity.  A day-and-a-half THAT bored is always an experience...
I figured ya'll would.  From what the forecasters said, it should have been mostly wind when you got it.  Was it? 

Although, I didn't think you would have as much problem, power wise...   Good to hear things are alright.  How much do you think it effected ya'lls early voting?

Dunno, to that last - Not everybody in the region lost power, and Buster still had school.  Her Plague Dr. won best costume, BTW.

I imagine it kept a lot of people who weren't at work busy, but the early voting has been steady for two weeks already, and there's still a few days...  -WE -my wimminz and I- voted last week, if that's what you're asking.

We got this weird almost only a drizzle w/ impressively heavy winds, real hard on the trees heavy, for four hours or so.  The damage was done by noon, and the afternoon was sunny blue skies -though still a bit gusty- and 80 degrees, which is impressively high for the butt-end of October here.

Awesome!

I tend to pay very close attention to a tropical storm/hurricane/tropical storm, or ignore it. Recently they've been in the ignore category. I've had one of those emergency hospitalization-in-the-family weeks. It ended well.
That said, I figure you're usually safe from such storms unless it stalls off the coast and fire hoses you.

Yeah, mostly wind only does hit hard, but without the weight of most of the water that usually blown with it, it doesn't have the same amount of the punch that it usually has.  Be grateful that it had mostly dried out before getting to you...

It was a little drizzle-plus, and went on for a long time, mind you.

We have way the most mold in the basement in the house's 50 years, this year - and last summer was pretty much the first time.

The popular stereotype of the researcher is that of a skeptic and a pessimist. Nothing could be further from the truth! Scientists must be optimists at heart, in order to block out the incessant chorus of those who say: It cannot be done.
