Yesterday afternoon I thought of myself, briefly, as a woe-is-me pore old widow lady. Today, seeing the aftermath of the hurricane in other places, I consider myself very very lucky.

Unfortnately: A tree fell on my house at 2 PM.  A large skylight was destroyed and fell onto my bed.

Fortunately: I was not in the bed. The dog was downstairs, I was downstairs, the cat was downstairs.

Unfortunately: A big piece of tree broke a window and part of the roof and entered the master bathroom.

Fortunately: the bathroom was unoccupied.

Fortunately: A neighbor/friend raced over and helped me upend the mattress, etc. and get it away from the drenching rain.

Fortunately: My yard crew, usually leaf-rakers and lawn-mowers...led by the wonderful Irish Kevin-with-a-Brogue...brought a helper and spent four hours inside and out, on the roof and on the ground, in the wind and rain, covering the holes in the roof; chain-sawing the tree and removing it from the roof and the bathroom.

Fortunately: This morning my insurance agent called.

All will be well.

It was terrible to see on TV this morning the footage of those thousands for whom all is not well. My own lament has disappeared completely.

Glad you're safe and that all will be fixed quickly. This was quite the freakish storm, and hopefully everything can be taken care of quickly throughout the affected areas.

So glad you and the pets are safe. In Michigan, we are getting a sleety mix and strong wind, buy nothing like you experienced. You are in my prayers!
Also wanted to let you know that last week I finished "Son." I couldn't put it down! Thank you for writing it! I really enjoyed it, but it left me wanting more. I keep thinking about the "what's next" in the story. Was Einar healed when the Trademaster was destroyed? Did he find Claire. Was the community that Jonas and Claire came from created through a trade with the Trademaster. Would love to read another in the series. Absolutely loved it!
Thank you for sharing your talents with the world!

It is such a healthy perspective to live our stories in contrast to others. The hopefulness of the ending in [i]Son[i] was a lovely closing to a beautiful quartet.
