Carol,

How did you fare with the weather? I'm hoping it wasn't too rough on your end.

Thanks for asking.  We actually didn't get very much bad weather at all.  A few wind gusts and a touch of rain.  Lost of clouds.  I feel for all the people that got hit so hard and are still feeling the effects.   We actually had much worse weather from Hermine, three days worth.  But all is well right now.
Thanks
Carol

Thanks, The back side winds from Matthew were worse for me than the approaching storm.  Charleston was hit badly, lots of flooding.  Fortunately for me the only real problem I had was 18 hours without power.  Local electric company lost an entire substation that provided my area with power.  Last evening I went out to dinner at a friends, when I returned about 7:30, the crew had been able to patch my neighborhood into another substation and power returned some time around 6pm. But it certainly seemed like I was living in a cave for a long time.
