So, we spent our first night in our new home. We were facing a Cat 1 hurricane (Hermine) coming into Ga right across our county, and wanted to be safer than in our old, worn out home.
That idea worked quite well. We were dry and snug, and you couldn't hear a thing unless you were right near a window or in the laundry room. The storm, thankfully, proved to be less than expected in our area.
There were a few limbs down/messy yards, and a few power outages, but we were spared the latter. The former, well, we had one 5 foot pine limb break and fall into our driveway, but I pulled it aside on my own, so no biggie.
We are very grateful for God's mercy here, and are praying for those less fortunate, both then and in days to come as Hermine wears itself out along the US coast. Stay dry, folks!
As you can see, we have no curtains yet, tools still adorn the dining room, but it is HOME. I didn't want to leave this morning to come back to our old place.
Our first supper in our new home consisted of ham sandwiches, white cheddar cheese puffs, and craisins (me only). Our niece lent us her Yeti cooler so we were good to go with ice and cold foods.
The boy slept with us as he has no blinds or curtains, and didn't want to face a storm alone, and in a new/strange house to boot. I woke several times, but the rain was minimal, as was the wind, so far as I could tell.
It was a good night!
