Went to bed last night knowing a storm was suppost to hit the coast sometime that night. Winds were expected to be blowing 35-40 knots with gusts up to 85mph!! I woke up around 4am to the howling wind, looked outside and was amazed at how hard it was actually blowing. Then got Ben outta bed so that we can get out stuff in the garage before it blew away. It was blowing so hard Noah and Bryce's table was sliding around, trash cans were moving (that were packed full) our outside table was being slammed against the front door, and a few other things flying around, it was nuts!!! So there is Ben and I in our pj's, wind blowing, sideways rain trying to get everything in the garage at 4am, what a sight!! In the end all Ben could say was "man i just got my garage all cleaned out" and fell right back to sleep.
So today we sit inside watching the tress blow sideways, branches break off, rain fall down, hoping we don't loose power. And I selfishly breath a sigh of relief knowing Ben isn't on duty and home safe with us, this time.
