We got to school this morning after passing trees snapped in half and many fences blown down by these winds (according to my Weatherbug we've had gusts up to 61 mph). I opened the car door and Madi nearly panicked. She covered her ears and with that I lost my ability to rationalize with her. She just cried, "I don't want to go to school today." She's making great strides though, because once I got her seatbelt undone she got out and marched up to the school. She felt better when I told her we would go directly in rather than wait outside the classroom.
I'm heading out now to an appointment, but I'm taking my camera to see if I can document any of the wind's destruction!
