Not gone with the wind

We're still here! We had a storm overnight that broke records--up to 69 mph winds near here. During last evening, the winds got pretty fierce, but we went to bed in our cozy upstairs bedroom buffered from all and slept right through it. As far as I can tell, nothing blew off the house. We didn't even lose power. No damage in our neighborhood, but all the schools are closed and I hear the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (the former "Galloping Gertie") was frightful! The Narrows turned into a wind tunnel during the night and they closed the bridge for a while. Of course, the waterfronts are littered with crashed boats and debris.

Disaster averted. The worst is over. We're just in for a good deal of rain (ooh--surprise!) and maybe a leeeetle snow.

Have a good weekend!
