I've lived on the east coast my whole life and I've never been through a hurricane. I mean, I was around during hurricanes, but we only ever got rain. Thankfully, things weren't bad for my family this year, either, but we did get a small (small, small) glimpse of what a hurricane is like. We lost power for about 8 hours and had tons of wind which knocked down several of our huge pine trees and our neighbors roof! I took refuge in the living room because a) my room is the loudest when it's windy (one time it was so windy that I was expecting to see Oz when I opened my bedroom door) and b) there's a huge tree in our front yard that is definitely going to destroy my room when it falls. I didn't want to take any risks.
Wind. Activities during the storm. Candles. Knitting. Camping out in the living room. Life of Pi. Watching the storm. Reading by lamp. The aftermath.
Did you guys make it through the storm?
