We weathered the storm in good spirits, however on Sunday there were tornado warnings all day and everything was eerily silent aside from ambulances and fire engines roaring past. No planes or trains can be heard in the distance, and until it was nearly dark there were no cars on the roads. Branches were ripping off the trees and walnuts were raining down on the yard. My mom insisted that I not leave the house, and she's hardly a worrier. I stayed in, and she stayed in. We were so lucky to have had power come back in the morning and we spent the day cooking and eating and checking up on all our friends and family we could get in touch with. The last time we had a hurricane it was days until we had power back. By early evening the wind still hadn't died down, but I went into the front yard for some fresh air and to capture the golden sky and its reflection on the front window. My camera practically blew out of my hand, and I made it a quick shoot.
