Without Power.

Last week our temperatures hit a high of 100+ and then Mother Nature dumped in a little humidity. What did we get on Friday night as a result? One of the craziest rain/wind storms I've ever seen. Last fall the East Coast prepped itself for Hurricane Irene. What Friday night's storm, she'll remain nameless, brought on was worse than anything Irene threw our way. On my run this morning I snapped this photo. This sums up how Maryland looks right now.

What I couldn't capture with this picture is the amount of people who have lost power. 

Remember that rain dance I requested for Colorado in my Friday Fav? Could you please continue doing that, but also add in a crossed finger or prayer that we get some power pumped back in the lines quickly? Thank you!

Hope you all had a wonderful and safe weekend! 


  1. The storm was crazy! I can't count the number of cars I saw Friday night driving home with huge tree branches on them. I heard on the radio today that the power companies hope most people will have power back by 11pm on Friday. So scary to think about having no power during this heat. I'm incredibly fortunate that we made it through unscathed.

  2. Oh my! I hope everyone is okay!! It sounds crazy by what you and Maria said!! Insane!

    1. Thank you! Things seem to be clearing up every hour!

  3. Just stumbled across your blog... I hope they get the tree cleaned up and the power back on soon! My parents got some really bad weather with EXTREME winds and a branch fell down on the back porch! (They live in Indiana). Hopefully you don't mind if I follow you :)
