The Calm AFTER the Storm

Posted on

Last night was pretty intense. The worst weather passed us by, east and west of us. We sat in the middle but winds made us nervous when it came to the antennas and the gardens. We lost no trees this time, thankfully.

I did a walk around this morning to check the garden and the wires in the trees. We got 0.6″ of rain. Ten miles east or ten miles west there were reports of 2-3 inches of rain. I count ourselves lucky this time.

The garden survived. Things are growing like mad.

Tomatoes

Cukes getting closer

Pole beans

My flowers are ready to pop open

I think again Howard County was mostly spared from lots of damage. We are thankful that we dodged the devastation and our prayers are with those in the other areas of Maryland affected by the severe weather last night.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.
