In Case There Was Any Question as to Why We are Off of School Again Today...

...let me show you around my neighborhood.  All of these were taken on Wednesday, four days after the hurricane hit.  We have a looooong way to go before this mess gets cleaned up.

The roof is tarped because a tree fell on it.  This family is lucky to have gotten it fixed so quickly.

Power lines...sort of...

This pole snapped in half

Lots of dangling wires

This made me so sad.  :(

These are supposed to be running electricity!  Not so much!

more dangling poles

This poor family can't get out of their driveway!

We know this family!  That tree put a hole in the roof.  :(

That's a really neat stack of firewood.  If you have a woodburning stove, I think you'll be all set for the winter with this abundant supply!

The tree knocked the shutter so it's crooked!

We had to go under this tree that was arched over the road.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  It was a very tight squeeze!

This one is dark, but this tree is hanging on another one across the driveway...and the car is parked under it!  I think I'd move that car...

I didn't get a good shot of this one because I was in a moving vehicle, but the tree took out the front porch.

See the corner?

I think that car might be a goner.  :(

There were soooo many trees down that I actually just stopped taking pictures of them.  We also saw a "Danger:  High Voltage" sign blocking a road because live power lines were down on it. 

I can't imagine too many kids in our neighborhood will be getting picked up at their regular spots.  A lot of the roads have enough room for a compact car to pass, but definitely not a school bus.  It's going to be a mess trying to get everyone to school, whenever we do go back!
