Before getting to the post we must mention that today is the
anniversary of V-J Day. The day Japan surrendered and the war
was over. Dad was in Tokyo Bay when the surrender agreement was
signed on September 2nd, 1945
The pictures above are of some of the damage done in our neighborhood. We lost power for over three days and two streets were blocked by fallen trees. We didn’t have any actual damage with the exception of losing all the food in our refrigerator and freezer.
It was the darnedest storm I’d ever seen. Standing out in the
driveway the wind would be a steady 50 mph, then out of nowhere it
would gust to 100 miles per hour. After a short time the wind would
die down only to ramp up again, and again, and again.
Heard this morning farmers lost 10 million acres of soybeans and
corn in the storm. Food prices may be going up again. And when we
went to the grocery store to re-stock our fridge and freezer we
noticed something I thought odd.
We found most of what we needed yet when we got the condiment aisle noticed there was no mayonnaise. Tons of catsup, mustard, relishes, and barbecue sauce, but not a jar of mayonnaise! We can live without it until next week when it won’t be as popular.
To others affected by this storm, hang in there. And whomever is
saying ‘it can’t get any worse’, please stop. 2020 is taking that
as a challenge.
Enjoy our Friday as we’re another day past the storm. Now for more
Comments are always welcome.
