Aw, did I step on your poor little itty bitty ego?

Had a wee bit of a wind storm here Thursday, with winds over 90km/h (55 mph). So many trees knocked down that our power was off for 48 hours. The power isn't a big deal as we have a generator that can run the well and keep the fridges and freezers cool. And the pellet stove we heat with ran fine on battery for the two days. The problem was the internet service went out a few hours after the power did. So I had to go into the office Friday to work.

On the positive side, the maple tree on the side of our driveway which still had 3/4 of its leaves on it Wednesday night only had a handful left by Friday morning. I had to get the leaf blower out to remove the knee deep leaves piled up on our gate before I could get out in the morning.
