So what did we wake up to this morning? A hurricane!
Of course, we had been warned since Thursday that heavy winds were heading our way. And this evening according to the weathermen, it has been 23 years since the Netherlands has experienced such high winds and damage from downed trees.
My hub and I stayed inside while the rain poured and the wind stripped those beautiful leaves from the trees that I photographed last week. We tried to finish up some tasks that will make it easier for everyone to continue with the remodeling next week. The painters finished their job on Saturday night late, but we spent yesterday and this morning during the storm cleaning up the floors, windows, doors, and baseboards from the paint splatters and dust.
I was awake when the storm blew in at around 3:00 AM, and then awake again when I thought I heard the phone ring around 5:00 AM, and finally awake and got out of bed at 7:30 AM. So I am ready to go to bed very soon.
