Three and a half days with no power and no water. This is what nature can do. Not a nice few days. We hunkered down and did what we had to do. It wasn't pleasant but made it through it.
We were greatful that it wasn't winter time. The storm that came through brought rain and seventy five mile an hour winds. We read by candle light, played cards, ate and did what we could. This tree took down all the power lines on our street. ripped the power off of a neighbors house and blocked the street for ten hours. We were thankful that it wasn't any worse and became closer with our neighbors. One learns to appreciat the simple things in life.

"They feared her because she had a gift, a power that has been passed on to you children. She had the gift of magic. And it was this very gift that saved her life."
"She was vanished to this very island. With her unborn child growing inside her belly. She waited for her lover to rescue her. But he never came. In a moment of despair, she cast a spell upon herself that she would never again feel the agony of love. but as her bitterness grow the spell turned into a curse. A curse on any man who dared love an Owens woman."
"FOR TWO SISTERS FROM A FAMILY OF WITCHES, FALLING IN LOVE IS THE TRICKIEST SPELL OF ALL."
"Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can lose your balance. You can't see what's happening to the people around you. You can't see that you're about to fall."
"She heard the beetle ticking for your father's death all day long. She knew that when you hear the sound of the deathwatch beetle the man you love is doomed to die."
"In this house we have chocolate for breakfast, and never bother with silly little things like bedtimes or brushing teeth."
"And this is what comes from dabbling; I mean you can't practice witchcraft while you look down your nose at it."
"I dream of a love that even time will lie down and be still for."
"Sometimes I feel like there's a hole inside of me, an emptiness that at times seems to burn. I think if you lifted my heart to your ear, you could probably hear the ocean."
"Office hereby concluded James Angelov's cause of death was accidental. Jewelry in the ashes of the structure provided positive identification. Sincerely, Gary Hallet special investigator."
"My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!"
"You get right over here and grab that spoon and dig right in. Doesn't that look great? And the fumes are great for the pores. Not to mention sealing his nasty spirit back into the grave."
"You know the stuff everyone whispers about me... the hexes, the spells? Here is the thing. I'm a WITCH!"
