This day was a hell'er. And I didn't get the worst of it, by a long shot. [View all]
My thoughts and prayers go to all those in worse shape than me. The storms for the most part passed either just to the north or just to the south of me. Many school delays and closings tomorrow. School badly damage near Lafayette. Fire stations damage in at least two communities, I saw one station collapsed on a piece of apparatus.
I was holding the door open to peek out when the winds kicked up on a dime, the door about came out of my hand, and I shut it real quick as me and the dogs headed for our safe place. It was blowing almost sideways, like a derecho, from what I could see. Crap was hitting the house. All while there were peeks of sunshine through openings in the clouds.
Very strange. Glad it wasn't worse here, and again, my thoughts and prayers are with those in need tonight.
