Looking north up my street.  There are never this many cars - these were people who couldn't get home.  They went as far as they could and walked, or in many cases, ran.

My backyard.  We are so, so lucky.

My neighbors backyard.

6 houses down from ours.

A very different skyline than we're used to.

Stairs.  No house.

Again, stairs with no house.  This man was home and he doesn't have a scratch on him.

Cathedral High School.

National Guard.

My family and I are all ok.  Just shocked.  We are so incredibly lucky, it's difficult to explain.
We have no power, and won't for maybe a week?  Two I've heard?  So we're camping out at my moms house, and going back into our neighborhood when we need things.  We went back yesterday and there was already so much progress.  Lots of trees removed from the roads, and power crews everywhere.  And there are many many volunteers with water and food.  I love my neighborhood so much, and I know we'll all get through this mess.
