209: Clean Up

The power finally came back on last night just in time for us to use hot water and the dishwasher as we cleaned up from dinner. This afternoon a crew of three or four big trucks and half a dozen county employees rumbled down the street, stopping at the house next door to remove limbs and debris created by the hurricane. My kids, and let's be honest, my husband and myself as well, were thrilled to watch this huge claw manipulate the branches into the back of a waiting dump truck.
