...they rolled thru here a few days ago, leaving alot of damage. We were under a tornado warning but I figured we live in the mountains so can't be for us. WRONG.
It was evening, nice and warm, I was laying on my bed watching T.V., the windows were open and there was a sometimes cool breeze. The breeze stopped. Then there was this silence and then a wind. Weird sounding. It was like a low vibrating roar and it just picked up in sound but there was NO wind or breeze coming in the window. It got so loud, I got kinda freaked out and shut the window so I wouldn't hear it. Louder still, I turned up the T.V. Then I went downstairs because I was spooked, and my hubby was feeling the same about it. So he went outside but soon came back in. By now the wind was extremely loud and strong. The wind took down half the tree in my son's front yard, right across the driveway from us. It was just hanging on the electric wire to my son's house. Mr. SweetMeadows went back out and down the driveway against my protests. By now it is raining bad. I watched him from the porch just as the wind took down the rest of that hanging tree and pulled the eclectric wire out of the house. The wire was live and was sparking and "jumping" and needless to say, the Mr. got back in the house quick!
We called 911 and they said they would send the fire dept. right away to secure the live wire.
So, my son was without power, but we still had ours......key word being "had".
I've always felt very safe in my home but now, not so much.....
Soooo, if you've been trying to reach me or have an order pending, etc., please be patient as we try to get our lives straightened out and everything back on track here in the next few days.
