The second storm came through today -- as promised. Wind, water, weather. Falling trees, major highways closed, major bridge closed. I got a phone call from work this morning not to come in -- no power and dubious road conditions.
So it was a peaceful home day hunkered down inside until late afternoon when the skies cleared. I took a walk and found that lots of homebound ladies had had the same idea at the same time. We were all out taking the air.
The daily inspection of the back yard showed a new layer of leaves cast down by the winds. Some old branches of the climbing roses had fallen down on the walkway. It's all looking pretty scruffy, but that's normal for this time of year.
