I took the dogs on a walk this afternoon, and took some photos of the storm damage at our local park. There are tons of branches down all over the neighborhood, and one of the big trees at the park is snapped in half. It's almost 7pm on Friday, and we still have no power or heat, and it's expected to drop below freezing tonight. It isn't all that bad, just really inconvenient, but I'll start whining for real if all weekend is like this. I've got tons of stuff to do, holiday knitting, holiday carts, plus a lot of work work. Also, per the lower right photo, I've got to fix (or supervise my assistant as she fixes) our backyard gate. As you can see, that gate will no longer keep the dachshunds in the yard!
