"Cato", Our Thanksgiving Nor'easter

We were dumped on! Living next to the town's safety complex, we hardly ever lose power and when we do, it's restored in no time. This storm, we lost power for almost 6 1/2 hours (some people are still out and may not have power until sometime tomorrow). Had my doubts the generator would run the electric stove well enough. Went looking for one of those deep fryers to use outside, but stores were either closed or sold out (guess other people had the same idea)! I was greatly relieved when the lights came on in time to make Thanksgiving dinner. Although I would have been just fine to be celebrating tomorrow night.

NH was so hard hit, we had power crews from as far away as Canada and Illinois (Thank you to all that gave up their Thanksgivings for New Hampshire)! There were power trucks everywhere! Still many people's power will be out for another couple days.

(Yes, that is my garden under that HUGE branch - the same garden that served as a buffet line for the deer, all summer.)

Several limbs fell around the property, over the course of the night and into the morning. It was so cool hearing the branches cracking and dropping. Every few years, we have a good storm like this. I LOVE WEATHER!

Thank you for visiting. Please come back soon!
