Late update

Sorry I haven't put anything up here for the past couple of days. Saturday Girlie Bear and I went fishing, and we spent the rest of the day working on the trim work in her bedroom. It looks nice now with the new paint and a chair rail.

Sunday we had a combined birthday party for the three older kids. We sometimes do this because their birthdays hit so close together. We had a few friends over, and I smoked a turkey in the grill. First time I ever did that, and it turned out very nicely. Going to have to do that again sometime. The kids made out like bandits, and of course Baby Bear was cooed over. Highlight of the day for me was Little Bear coming over. He hasn't been over to the house in weeks, and it was great to spend a few hours with him.

About noon the wind really started up. My car was being pushed all over the road, but we made it home OK. By the end of the afternoon, we'd had 75 mph gusts knocking over trees and power poles all over the area. By the end of the day LG&E reported that most of their customers were without power. All of the schools in the area are closed.

Luckily for us, we only had a couple of blips in the power at the house. We lost digital cable and broadband for a few hours, and I need to take the chainsaw to some limbs that got snapped in the wind. Overall though, we're in good shape.
