yesterday, just after 5:30 the wind knocked over our neighbor's tree and it, in turn, knocked out power to our little block! that was on top of a day of seemingly endless rain and wind... that stretched well into the night. this is a picture i took this morning, when things finally quieted down. there were downed trees all over the neighborhood - and most houses were without power.
i originally thought it might take only a day or two to get the power restored. but i went out for a run this morning (after bagging the trip to rock hill for the celebrate life half marathon) and the landscape was truly bleak. there downed trees and power lines all over! be that as it may, no one was hurt, so things aren't that bad.
hope everyone else survived this intense wind storm!
