Wow, this must have been one crazy week! We just got back from 4 days in Gatlinburg, it was only in the 70's there, even cooler up in the Smokies. Got some great photos though.

Came home, our yard is full of leaves and broken branches, some as big around as my thumb! Glad the house is still intact anyway!

Hope everyone's doing well! Congrats on your big news!
