Our house in Canton is surrounded by very large trees and we are worried about some falling on the house where our daughters', Emma and Jillian, rooms are so we decided to move the family to the living room on the first floor. They think it's a party, but don't know it's for their own safety. Thanks for the great coverage, we've been watching for hours.
