Post Irene and Other Weather

Previous post, I told you I would make hurricane beads, and I did manage to make some.

(Photos following are from around my county).
Within the course of a week, our area has experienced:
A waterspout

 (actual waterspout at the beach here) 

which resulted in a tornado,
 (no damage)

a few days later, an earthquake
felt here and throughout the east coast
(again no damage here)

and yesterday a hurricane.

Is there a message in this?
Is Someone trying to get our attention?

Fortunately, none of these have been severe,
only minor damage...

...some flooding

...and the inconvenience of power outage for
over 280,000 homes in eastern NC; 50,000+ in my area.
We were fortunate, as our lights only flickered a few times, but never went out.  Also, we experienced no damage ~
I expected a huge dead pine to topple ~
the wind sounded fierce!

Here are the before and after pics of my yard.

It's nothing really ~ I wouldn't bother showing, except that I promised to.

Even now, the Mr. is up on the roof blowing off debris, where most of it lands.

We are so thankful for the safety of ourselves, our family and our friends. My heart goes out to those who experience losses.  Stay safe, my northern friends.

A couple more beads I made during Irene.
