Not your typical Unraveled post . . . but unraveled all the same!
Early in the evening last night, a severe thunderstorm moved through . . . wreaking havoc in our up north neighborhood. It is so scary to be in the woods during strong winds and storms -- to see the wind whipping those trees around, to hear all the branches falling onto your roof and against your windows, and especially to hear the THUD of a giant tree hitting the ground.*
We lost power. We tried to make the best of it by playing Scrabble by candlelight. (And taking selfies while wearing our headlamps. Because what else are you going to do?)
But after continuing thunderstorms through the night - and the sound of more trees falling - we knew power restoration wouldn't be simple or quick. (When we lose power up north, it's not just electricity that we lose. It's also water-- because the pump on our well is electric.)
So our lovely end-of-summer week up north unraveled a few days early. We packed up . . . and headed home.
(But that's okay.) (Our toilets flush at home!)
- While many trees came down all around us, our little cottage was spared any damage.
