Well Ike paid us a visit here in KY. Was high winds with a little rain tossed in. Ended up snapping two large limbs out of the pecan tree as well as several dozen smaller ones. Only one limb in the chestnuts fell however.
Front yard looks like a mine field with all the chestnuts on the ground.
Power went off around 9:30 this morning, good thing we have a gas stove for breakfast. Ended up going out to eat supper instead of trying to muck around at home. Stopped in WalMart to pick up some flashlights, propane for the lanterns and batteries. Came home and fired up all three of our lanterns..
Really, didn’t seem like we were without power there was so much light in the house. Makes things nice, ya know? Anyway, was 12 hours in total without power, but several places near us will be out for days.
On the bright side, we have plenty of chestnuts. At least 12lbs now, with most likely 30lbs on the ground still. At $6/lb we’re going to make a killing! Or at least, some chestnut pies.
I’ll post a few pictures tomorrow. :)
