75 mile an hour winds swept through. Buildings shuddered, rain pelted, trees fell, overhead lines came down, traffic lights went out, things went bump in the night, trash cans tumbled down streets, shingles blew off, bridges were closed, traffic was a nightmare, and many areas lost power. Some communities are still without power. Kids got a "wind day" as schools were closed. In our neighborhood we noticed a downed tree covering our roadway and a garage that apparently caught on fire when a tree fell near it. Really scary. Upside: I no longer have leaves to rake. :-)

Well, there's always a silver lining, I guess. The news photos on CNN were quite amazing. One always breathes a sigh of relief when no damage hits close to home. You're lucky--good!!

So glad you are safe. We too have had high winds, but fortunately escaped any major damage. My bar-r-que was buckled down to the broke loose and went scooting. So far, no loss of power. Stay safe...I guess it isn't over yet.

I wonder if your readers notice the mountain in the horizon. Is that Renier? or Baker?
