Well, we were mostly spared by the high winds.  We're supposed to get rain for four days straight, but the wind has stopped.  It did keep me awake most of Monday night, though, because I kept imagining one of the two large Spruce trees to fall onto the house Frown.  But all was well.  One tarp blew off the bales and one piece of tin off the barn (it was loose anyway ...).  So overall not too bad.  DD #2 stayed home Tuesday since I twisted my ankle on Saturday and am still limping.  She walked the fence, took small trees off that had fallen and fixed any wires that were broken.  Great help.

I'm glad to hear you were spared the worst of it Brigitte, I was thinking of you and wondering how bad it would have been in your neck of the woods.  I know what you mean about worrying about trees that might come down in the wind, we have a lot of trees around our house and I worry about that too.

I hope your ankle is better, but at least you had some help from DD, that would have made a big difference.

Elaine, I'm glad you're back :) Yes, I was glad we were spared and that I had DD's help. I called the doctors office today, because my ankle still hurts. It's not broken, just majorly sprained :( The nurse told me to keep my ankle up as much as possible (hah), but she knows that's just about impossible around here.
