1/3 of the state is without power, including me. Luckily, mine is an isolated wire snap so the little dogs and I are bunking at Mom's. There is some house damage from limbs, I will lose all my snakes most likely. Temps are around freezing, but the tropical snakes won't make it and there is no place for them to go.
Uncle John is in transit to the new place (over here)and basically I am dazed and confused but unhurt.
More insights to come, but the most amazing thing to me is how scarey it was to have trees crash down on your house. I couldn't believe I was actually scared, frightened, etc. I haven't even told anyone I was scared because the likely response would be "WHY were you scared, you were inside...."
Mom is really agitated. Every time the lights flicker she starts howling NO NO NO and I have had to distance myself from that. If the power goes off, we'll move into a motel and eat *gasp* store bought food for a few days. It won't kill any of us.
