My neighbor called yesterday and said, "Thanks, Annie. By renting that generator, you've effectively guaranteed we won't have anything to worry about."
He was right. What we actually received from Hanna pales in comparison to our regular, end of the day thunderstorms. I think all said, we had A wind gust -- maybe up to about 15 MPH, and about 1.5 inches of rain. SHEESH!!
I'm really trying to take the "glass half full" approach on this one and tell myself that now I know what I'll need to do in case we do need to prepare for a hurricane.
But, for now, we're enjoying the grass which was watered for free, and the beautiful sunrise.
