well luckily we are ok. we spent the night in alexandria with patty gamburg. we were able to get in touch with a neighbor yesterday afternoon and learn that our neighbor hood was ok and the electricity woudl be back on soon so we came on home...we were joined on the road by convoys of utility trucks and national guard vehicles...
we have electricity obviously..and only some missing shingles and tree limbs down...
my camera battery has gone missing .....when i find it i'll take photos.

Relieved to know you are ok and that your house is still standing and intact.
I would have emailed earlier but I left my laptop behind in Melbourne last week- not planned.
