Although I generally try to keep this site "family favorite recipe related", we had a little bit of excitement Sunday night while I was working on this blog. A monster storm with 90-125 mph winds moved unexpectedly and very quickly through Ohio and into Pennsylvania. Luckily I had just turned my computer off before the power went out - and before the trees fell on the house - right above my desk and where I was sitting! To say that the earth shook is an understatement! And while we lost four beautiful sugar maple trees in the backyard, we also had trees down and on top of the front of the house and two cars. No power, monsoon rains, and the most incredible wind I have ever heard in my life. Mile after mile of BIG trees down, everywhere. Everyone has been asking for photos, so I thought I would share them with you. No one was hurt - and that is really all that matters! We are truly blessed!
