The wind from Hurricane Lee continued all night and most of today, but the wind was not as strong as predicted. We did get some rain overnight, but not as much as expected. That was all good news. But at 8:45 am Shadow and I were jolted by a very strange sound. I immediately looked out all of the windows and saw that a large limb, the size of a small tree, had fallen inches in front of one of the storage sheds in the back yard. It was too windy to go down to inspect the damage as I feared other limbs might fall, but I got close enough to take photos. Jed came over this afternoon to get the tree down on the ground and cut it up for firewood. Thank you, Jed. While he was doing that, Lynda came over to inspect the damage. We were just lucky it fell inches away from the shed. Otherwise, this in the shed, including my bicycle could have been crushed. We lucked out with this storm, as it moved far enough to the east to not do too much damage here on the Cape.
