Little la Grange, STX, power went out around 8pm. Still out!
Most chairs outside are not in their normal place. My table on deck blew about 4 ft across my balcony.
When I went outside to start generator at first light, I saw that my banana tree was now flat to the ground. BBQ was overturned.
Even though, I'm assuming, this was not named, it had more wind and rain than did Erica two years ago.
