All over but the shoutin'

We - personally - dodged a major bullet with this one.

No more major trees down in the immediate vicinity.

We lost electricity for a short time early this morning. NOVEC rocks!

To the north, Fairfax county lost power to it's water treatment plants, so folks have to boil their tap water before using. I think people are going door-to-door to pass the word because they still have widespread power outtages.

Update: Loudon county is also having water problems, as is the city of Alexandria. Now they're telling folks to drink bottled water, because natural gas has been turned off in areas around the counties.

Flooding is still our biggest worry, but we're sitting up pretty high that I'm not too concerned. Our basement stayed dry. Wonder of wonders. I estimate somewhere around 6" of rain fell. It's true people, prepare for the worst, and it won't happen to you.

More later. Gonna go take a walk.

No pics of the neighbor's car floating away? (sniffle)

Glad you're okay, though. Hurrah!
