What a doozy of a storm we had last night! Between trees down, flooded streets, and nonworking traffic lights, my 1-hour commute became a 3-hour commute. And no power at my house (still out as of 8:00 this morning when I left for work).
At times during my drive, the storm was downright scary, and by that time the worst of it was over. This morning, it was not raining, and I could get a clear view of the destruction…I passed one cemetary that had two giant trees completely uprooted. They had fallen away from the road I was on…lucky, because if they had fallen the other way, they would have come right down on 4 lanes of traffic.
In my neighborhood, there are lots of semi-large tree limbs ripped off (about up to 8 inches in diameter, I guess?) but no major trees, thank goodness.
Hope all is well for eveyone else around here, and in other parts of the country with all this bad weather!
