No posts for three weeks? That's not good. I was on a nice run there for a while.

Anyway, last night I think our 'hood got hit by some sort of microburst, or other extreme weather event. For the first time I remember tornado sirens were actually triggered in the city, and a few hours later we could feel bursts of wind and rain slamming into the house. Trees were downed throughout the neighborhood. It was really something. Apparently there were up to 10,000 lightning flashes an hour for a while.

So, what did we learn from this? First, U does not like massive storms. Second, our basement is not as well set up for riding out a storm as it should be. Third, I can sleep through a pretty good sized storm.
