Well, the storm is over. My Dad is going to make a quick trip (if you can call eight hours on the road in one day quick) back to his place and his business to survey the damage. Preliminary reports suggest that he didn’t take any water in his home and may only have minor damage. The big pine trees behind his house didn’t fall. So here’s hoping! My in-laws also seem to have gotten away with fairly minor damage as well. They’re both quite lucky indeed.
Thanks for all of your thoughts and well wishes. It really means a lot! 🙂
