One weather guy referred to it as a "wind event". At one point, I had this textversation with Meego:
Suffice to say, it was not a good day to be a tree. Or, in some cases, a house... or a car. Definitely not a good day to be a truck driver. Tipped over tractor trailers were the scene of the day on the highway.
Magnum kept texting me photos of trees falling around his office. Not a whole lotta work got done there with everyone watching the trees uproot. I ventured outside and saw a large blue spruce laying down in the street 😟
As noted above, Meego's school, along with most others, didn't get much schoolin' in either. But... pizza! There was A LOT of pizza.
Pretty much all schools cancelled bus service since the wind would probably blow the busses over. Meego normally walks to and from school, but today was not a day to be outdoors with debris flying around - trash, roof shingles, tree branches, trampolines... kitchen sinks? I managed to pick him up after the nonproductive day, his spent mostly in the bandroom.
Of course, it could've been much worse. I haven't heard of anyone being seriously hurt, and I had power in the house all day. I'd started doing some needed painting around the house last week, so since I was stranded, I finished that up.
I like to stream movies while I'm doing such mindless work. I streamed an awful awful movie. The Heart Machine. I don't even know what that title is supposed to mean. But really, it was terrible. Like watching paint dry (see what I did there?)
So... how was your day?
