Well it kept heading further and further west in track and came by within 10 miles of my home. We had no real damage except the privacy fence in the back is leaning real bad, think the guy who put it up didn't use enough concrete in the poles. Lots of debris from the oaks, cleaned the front yesterday, going to start on the back today. Lucked out and didn't loose power (88% of the county did) and internet has been mostly working. Cell service has been up and down a lot but seems to be stable now. Could have been a lot worse.How did you make out Burnie, if/when you get electric back if you lost it? From where you marked on the map, you hopefully missed the worst of it.
I have friends that moved down there late last year and bought a house in Rotunda West on one of those peninsulas where it got pretty bad. They were scared by what they'd find after they returned after evacuating. The area flooded but apparently not into their houses although it's been since that first night that they've been able to post anything since, wherever they are currently has no juice.
We are just now starting to get the edges of the storm here with two days of rain expected. Our electric grid has been flaky lately with periodic outages, however I dread the thought that we get hit right now because I'm sure a lot of out linemen are down south dealing with that mess. That's the scenario where we are out for days at times.
My search for a dog has been discouraged or discouraging. I was approved by one of the rescues but after reading the contract that needed to be signed for adoption, I wouldn't really own the dog, just rent it. I couldn't even decide who would get the animal if I were no longer here to take care of it. I'd have to have it returned to them. Of course, that could be a good thing. It cost me over $500 to take care of Jackson at the end.
Picture shows path and about where I am located.
