I haven't been online since Thursday night due to a huge windstorm that we had here in Washington.  My house had wind gusts of upwards of 80mph, and the damage around here is horrible.  It looks like a bomb went off.  Needless to say, the power is slowly being restored.  I still have no power, due to several huge trees took down power lines on my street.  I will post the pictures in this journal once I get my internet back on.  Until then I might not have power until the week is out.  Luckily our house suffered minimal damage.  We had a little flooding in my back yard, and we lost a 35' tree, but that was it.  My neighbors had a tree crash through half their fence.  Other then that, the driving is horrible, due to the debris on the roadway; but life goes on.

I'll be back online when I get full power restored!

Till then,

*update*

Well I finally got everything restored last night.  All the power was finally back up, as well as the cable.  When I was finally able to log in last night, and found  140 deviations, 167 messages, 3 notes.  So I have my work cut out for me for the next few days.  But here a few quick snapshots I took of the damage.  These were taken about 2 days after the storm:  (All photos taken from the street I live off of within a 1 mile area)

Great photos and I agree the last photo is great, huge trees...
Im not near the bush fires that we've been having in this state, but we've been waking up to smoke as thick as a London fog in the morning...

Ouch, you guys are still out? Luckily our power came back on Saturday afternoon; out for about fifteen to twenty hours here. Bellevue and Renton still had patchy power (and lots of surges) yesterday. We had a few flickers last night, but that was it.

Good luck getting your power back! :)
