|My kitchen at 9:25 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2016.|
I've hauled all the patio furniture, etc. back where they belong. The sun is helping to dry out the saturated ground. It feels so good and is a reminder not to take my life for granted. It feels wonderful to be able to breathe deeply, not worrying if the next minute will bring life-threatening winds or devastating rains.
It's not all sunshine and rainbows, though. There are a few things in the aftermath of the storm that aren't so great. Since it appears my roof is going to stay where it is, I was forced to finally clean the house. While I was cleaning I heard a loud, constant sound from outside. I stepped outdoors and realized it was the sound of weeds growing. Apparently, now that I have the house clean, I'm going to have to spend a few hours soon pulling weeds before my house starts to look like Angkor Wat.
|I took this photo in Angkor Watt in July, 2014. I saw a weed today that looks a lot like these tree roots.|
