Late August brought a hurricane our way, just as Mike was returning from Yuma and just as I was returning from Kentucky. We arrived to find that Irene left us with no electricity, a refrigerator and deep freeze full of spoiled food and two large trees laying across our back and side yard. They fell perfectly perpendicular to our house! Thankfully we had no damage, just a huge mess to clean up. Mike bought a chainsaw and we got to work cutting up the trees and hauling them to the curb. We went without electricity for a couple more days, but it wasn't too bad.
