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. :-)
