What a storm!
We made it thru the storm. We lost power three times. The last time it was for 30 hours so I had to throw out most of the food from the refrigerator--Daisy got upset when I did this and watched and groaned! The freezer food is fine. No one got hurt although my daughters family's home was flooded in New Jersey. They are fine but it's a real mess for them. Our son is fine,he lost power for 12 hours. Our electricity finally came back on but the pump has lost it's prime so we have to have the plumber come. Hopefully today. We're tired but thankful.
While the storm raged I painted at my art table. I worked on my ES mini Landscape of Davis Wharf Marina. This is from a photo I took many years ago. I realized why I chose a detailed painting. It focused my mind on the painting not the howling wind or crashing of trees in the forest outside. I almost got carried away with the details but hope I stopped it time. How did you spend your time in the hurricane? I hope all your family and loved ones are safe and sound. take care, Diana
ps. I forgot and left a hummingbird feeder out during the storm, one little female came and perched on the feeder and spent the afternoon waiting it out with us. She was in the porch. I moved the feeder to protect her under the roof of the porch. Tried to take a photo but it didn't work. She was adorable!
