My sister and my niece sent me this picture of my parent's yard in the aftermath of the hurricane. One of the pines snapped off just above the ground and fell on the neighbor's shop. Doesn't look like it did too much damage. The swing set is tied to the tree, I dunno if that was to keep it from blowing away, or to bolster the tree when it cracked.

There were a lot more trees there when I was growing up, but every hurricane seems to take another one or two ...

Power is back on–they have a generator they go to for fans and the TVs and lights when the juice goes out, and it always does. My sister and brother-in-law are there, along with one of my parents' caregivers. Everybody is doing fine. 

Welcome to hurricane country ...
