There’s nothing like experiencing a hurricane to make you realize how grateful you are for your house and property. Hurricane Sandy was a massive storm and she was projected to pass right over Harford County. Scary stuff! The weather started getting bad on Sunday as Sandy approached the coast, but it was Monday afternoon when things got really ugly. The rain came down in buckets and the wind. . . wow. The trees were bending and twisting like crazy! And it wasn’t just occasional gusts. We’re talking sustained winds around 50mph. We finally lost power around 8pm Monday night, so Connor and I spent the rest of the evening by candlelight listening to hurricane news coverage on a battery-powered radio. Come morning, I was afraid to look outside and see what kind of damage might be waiting; but thankfully, all we lost to the storm was our small Hibiscus tree. I think to say I was relieved is an understatement. The very real threat from Hurricane Sandy put in perspective just what we could have lost. Our house is not only our shelter, it's also our comfort, our safety, our foundation. Our *home.* And for that I am truly grateful.
