    I was right smack dab in the middle of it. Lost power for six days. Still haven't finished cleaning up from it. I still have trees... not limbs TREES down out in the field that need clearing.

      after a large tree fell on her home last year. She had to move out while her home was partially rebuilt. We are so fortunate she was not injured at all physically...but the stress on her has been so hard...her home is much improved and updated, but it is not the "home" she's lived in for the past 52 years. She'll be 88 this summer...the derecho came just days after the family had gathered to celebrate her birthday last year. If the storm had come through then, that tree would have claimed several lives, I am sure.

      I know storms really worry her now.

      Good luck to all in the path of this thing. Be careful and stay safe!
