Came home one afternoon to see this storm coming in. Sure got dark quick…

While I watched, the wind kicked up and a tree fell down over by the wedding tree!

We keep having big thunderstorms that drop a lot of rain. Nice to not have to worry about watering the garden! But the power did go out last week for a whole day. And voila, we were reminded that we really DO need backup power–as we have no water and more importantly no SUMP PUMP action in the basement. Flooding was minor down there, luckily. But we should really think about our preparedness for this kind of thing!
