Wow! Who's hot car is that? Oh, ha, mine. Hey Steve! Yes, I named my car Steve. We are in love and we will live happily ever after.
I remember creating traffic on this bridge with Zack. We would line all of our favorite cars and trucks on the bridge until it was completely full. Then we would slowly drive them off the bridge. Now, as a driver, I cannot even fathom why we thought creating traffic was fun.
Back to the hurricane. I am so thankful for men. Dad and Frank stayed up for about 3 hours in the wee hours of the early morning while the sump pump flushed out the excess water in the basement. When the electricity goes off the sump pump cannot do its job, so Frank and Dad helped it along.
During all this action, I was sleeping in my bedroom, completely unaware of what was going on...until I heard a chainsaw. I heard a chainsaw and two people yelling back and forth. For about 30 seconds I actually thought a tree had fallen on the house and someone was cutting it to rescue us. I was so distracted that I put all my clothes on inside out and I didn't even know it until Char pointed it out later. That chainsaw sound is yet to be explained, but I did find out that the two people yelling were Dad and Frank. Phew!
