The back half of war was pretty much effectively canceled, and 3,000 people came together as one big family to help each other clean up, salvage, remove trash, feed each other, shelter each other, and just generally make sure everyone was okay. There was a lot of chaos right after the storm - there was a bit of a meat-grinder of frightened, stampeding humans trying to GTFO for a while - but for the most part people took care of each other, and that was really wonderful to see. Barring a few concussions and a couple of broken feet, I don't think we had any very serious injuries, and no one was lost or killed. All of the animals - horses, hounds, falcons and birds, and all the pets and service animals - made it out just fine, thank goodness.
Up until then, war was SO much fun. I have pics of the ravine battle, the campsite, the feast, and a couple of other things that I'll share later as soon as I get organized and finish unpacking and doing laundry. (By the way, my new tent held up like a champ!) For now, though:

though I have no idea if it really is. This is just what's going around Facebook).
