Definitely praying for all my other peeps here:)
I live just outside of DC in Northern VA. We are going to get many of the bands of rain and high winds but looks like the center will be a bit north of us.
After the Derecho freak wind storm that caused so many issues for us with cleanup and power outtage for 5 days. As well as the Hurricane Irene last year...we are pretty well set with supplies and a great group of friends and neighbors all willing to help one another.
I just pray for my mom as she has heart issues and can get great anxiety about
branches breaking or trees falling. Our neighbor just pain to have one of our pine trees (85 foot) topped off to make it much less dangerous. It was stressing them each storm even though it's a healthy tree...But since they decided to pay because we just dont' have the money....I did all the work of calling and interviewing the companies, making sure they were trully licensed and insured, and get a good, fair, price. It was nerve wracking watching them climb up so high and tie up branches and large trunk pieces lowering them back down without hitting our home which is only 3 feet next to the tree. But especially not the gas meter and all our cable box!
So, hopefully they will feel safer tonight and the next days of wind and rain!
I hope that everyone is set up with supplies and all set to go snuggled in bed:)
