There is Power, Power, Wonder working Power.. Just not at our house.

Yep. We had a hurricane hit Da.yt.on, Oh.io. At least that is what is felt and looked like. With winds that hit 75 miles per hours in some places and no winds gust below 54 miles per hour, we were doomed from the start.

Luckily DH and I didn't lose too many big limbs and we are going to have a heck of a clean up, but not loss of home.

As for power, there are over 200,000 people without it in the area and it will be several days before we are all back up and running. More than likely, DH and I will be without power for several days.

All I can say is thank the Lord we have a gas hot water heater.

Once in a while we get east winds of 75-90mph, we've lost chimneys, had windows shatter, our huge cotton wood trees topple over (luckly not into the house), It is messy.

One nice thing about a motor home with a generator when we lose power, at lease we have a fridge, electricity, heat, all the goods, it's like going camping.

I hope you guys get your power back soon and back to some comfort, it's really an eye opener and makes you appreciate what we have when we lose something, sometimes I feel like such a fragile human being.

I definitely agree...a gas hot water heater can be the best thing ever!
