Home Once More
We are back home once more. It was an interesting trip. Interesting because as we got closer and closer to the center of the storm track the visible damage increased noticeably. Once we got onto secondary roads the going was kind of tricky since many of the traffic lights were still out or were at crazy angles so you could not see them. Fortunately in a "Who goes first?" situation, the Mothership is big enough that no one argues with you. Our neighborhood has a strange surreal appearance since none of the trees have very many leaves on them. Another thing we noticed is the smell of decaying vegetation everywhere. We did indeed feel like tiny little carbon life forms when looking at all of the forces of nature that were at work here. I will take some pictures to share with you. We lost a couple of more fence sections and one screen panel on our patio but that seems to be it. It feels good to be back on my home keyboard and Internet connection instead of jury rigging campground phone lines and cell phone connections.
