Last week was ALL about Hurricane Matthew and this week has been all about the aftermath. We worked Monday and Tuesday then had the rest of the week off due to the hurricane. The governor ordered evacuations and I am SO thankful the military decided we didn't HAVE to leave. They did evacuate the bases but since we don't live on them we were good. I won't lie though once we got closer to Friday and the track wasn't moving as East as we wanted I started to get nervous. Dave and my parents both made me feel alright about staying and I am so glad I listened to them. Leaving Charleston wouldn't have been that bad but I heard people say it took 7 hours to get back from Greenville which should take max 4. We had a little fun before the storm though....
They are doing this CFC campaign at work to raise money and they did a compliment event. This is the one my husband had delivered to me. It definitely was a bright point in my day!
Thursday after lunch we met up with my friend Melinda and her niece at the N. Charleston Riverfront Park. We all wanted to get out before the storm to help cabin fever not be as bad plus it was still nice outside besides some wind and clouds.
We got an early dinner then stayed home the rest of the day. Friday I woke up early, took Teddy for a long walk, we hit up Target and grabbed his buddies truck then chilled the rest of the day. The weather started to get bad Friday evening so we knew we were staying put after moving our cars to a better parking spot. Where we normally park has TONS of big trees around so we moved them to a better location.
All Friday night and Saturday morning this is what I was watching, I wanted to stay informed. I was able to get some good sleep though and so did Dave so that was a win.
This was the only thing wrong at the new house, a bent tree.
