First Big Storm

Friday evening, we had our first big storm here in Illinois.  Well, it was a doozy!  Our neighborhood had a thunderstorm with a microburst that had 80 mph winds.  By the time it was all over, the place looked like a war zone.  Down power lines, uprooted trees, branches and limbs everywhere.  Power has been out for a while, but the great folks at ComEd worked tirelessly to restore power as soon as they could.  We got to enjoy the sound of power saws chopping up tree limbs and generators humming for a while.

We're thankful no one in the neighborhood was injured.  Cleaning up this week.  No cards to see today.
