Then -

Then - 

- taken when sunshine filtered through Dogwood leaves on a warm day

- today, I'd have to slog through the rain to possibly get a shot
- but with rain and winds gusting
- not going to even try

- if any shots are taken
- they will be through my trusty windows

- Hurricane Michael has become a Tropical Storm

- looking out my window, the rains are here
- we are supposed to get in one day
- what we usually get in the entire month of October

- the hatches are battened down
- nothing that can get caught in a gust has been left out
- just hoping some of our neighbors have also
- would hate to have stuff thrown at our home
- but, one does what one can
- the rest is wait
- at least this one isn't crawling like Florence did

- we moved home to North Carolina from Florida
- but the Hurricanes got our forwarding address
Update on Tropical Storm Michael - he is gone !

Had wind gusts of 50mph - few branches down but we are fine.

The worst part for us - no power = no way to fix coffee!

Power restored (we were of the 25,000 who lost power) - fridge /freezer clean out and re-stock.. It is very interesting the things one can discover to do when you have flashlights and candles.. Kudos to our Power Company for getting 25,000 customers back... in 24 or less hours

Yes, this is indeed a lovely bokeh, and Peggy, so glad things did not go too bad for you. What terrible times N.C. is facing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
