I survived the big windstorm of 2015!

The road up ahead is indeed paved with uncertainty. With ever corner we never know where disaster will lurk. North Idaho didn’t expect the giant windstorm that hit early Tuesday morning. with gale force winds of up to 115 miles per hour,some unlucky home owners and businesses will be cleaning up for weeks.

I am thankful mostly for the sense of community that we have here. Neighbors were checking on each other and everyone lending a helping hand in the massive clean up effort. I can truly say I live in one of the best cities. I am sure someone will print the popular t-shirt that they have survived the great wind storm of 2015,but I am just thankful that the storm was not worst that it could have been.

with Thanksgiving day right around the corner, recent events give us pause to truly be thankful for tomorrow and something so simple as electricity and running water. We did not get the cold snap predicted for today.

I am thankful for the love of community.

My neighborhood was safe.

Massive clean up efforts.

Warming shelters.

Animal shelters.

The storm is OVER.
