This is a short post, as we’ll wager people don’t have much free time this weekend.
Friday’s “derecho” storm resulted in mixed damage in the neighborhood. We lost only a few large branches and have power. Others weren’t near as lucky.
Just six houses away, a cluster of four to five homes lost their roofs in part or entirely. Elsewhere porches and fences collapsed, utility lines were snapped and cherished trees were left in pieces.
We’re especially concerned about those who may need help. We’re checking on a few local households to make sure there’s power, water, food, that sort of thing. But others may need help but don’t know where to turn.
If anyone in the neighborhood here knows of someone vulnerable, please let us know. We’d like to help our community any way possible. Direct email is best for individuals; larger general concerns can be left in the comments section.
