and safe and sound. We just had our power restored late this afternoon after being out since last Sunday. Those 137 mph winds that were clocked here in Astoria did some mighty big damage to the entire Oregon, Washington and Northern California coast. I'm not sure how far north the winds reached, but I am here to tell you that there are still thousands of people without power right now and one small mountain town that I know of, Vernonia, that is completely flooded out. Our thoughts and prayers to all of those people who are still in the dark tonight. May you all keep warm and fed.
I will have some pictures to share tomorrow of just a bit of the local damage. We have some friends whose garage is flattened to the ground, others with trees laying on their homes. We came very close to losing our big picture window, but all is intact and we will get the insurance adjuster out when things calm down. Our damage is very minor.
What a time to start a daily trivia post, huh?! Thank you all for participating in last WEEKS question. Yes, the answer is "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and all those correct answers are in my little basket.
Today's question is:
Traditionally, how many weeks are there in Advent?
Leave your answer in my comments section to be entered into the after Christmas drawing and check back for tomorrow's question and todays answer.
Blessing all ~ Stay safe all you Coast dwellers...
