When it rains...

So, there's a line of storms passing through the area tonight.  It's been raining all day and this evening the wind picked up.  The power went out and the generators at the hospital only support vital functions - you know, ventilators and such. When we went under tornado warning all the patients had to go out and sit in the hall. That's always interesting when the entire patient population is lining the hallway - confused elderly folks and all.  Then I got a text that a tree from my yard fell across the road. I'm just glad it didn't hit the house! I'm back in my hospital room now. I just hope things calm down. Nothing more, please!   This adventure has been interesting enough, I think.

Thanks so much, bb. I'm grateful for you. :-).

Things worked out pretty well. They let me out of the hospital this morning, and hopefully I will be back to normal by the time I have to go back to work on the 27th. The power company cut up the tree and power and other services are up and running today. Definitely could have been worse.

Take good care, dear! <3

Thanks much. Looks like things are back online this am. The power company came out very promptly and cut up the tree. Definitely could have been worse!

Thanks, dear. Just feels like one more thing... But the power company came out very promptly and cut the tree up and power/cable/etc. quickly restored. So all in all, not too bad.
