  •  Voila! Checkin' in... (5+ / 0-)

    It has blown over for now...and, if the future forecast radar thingamabob is correct, we are through it in full (even though under storm watch until 10pm).

    Blew like stink for about 5 minutes...dumped rain...and moved quickly past. Power held on...flickered a lot, but, it flickers around here if a butterfly burps. /grin

    Hope everyone else fares as well.

    Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

      So glad you and yours are all right. Looks like it's all screaming East at 40 miles an hour. At least in NC.
