Rockin and Rollin

We had one heck of a storm late yesterday afternoon. The winds were around 80 mph. Trees down on my route home. One of the huge cottonwoods in the back field by our house, our sunbreak in the summer, blew down taking a mass of limbs from the other trees. It looks bare back there today. Our shed, which wasn't in great shape to begin with, but we were going to paint it this summer was trashed. Power was out for about 3 hours and again for a half hour during the night. Today we are cleaning up. The garden doesn't look too bad. The plants are all leaning because of the wind. All in all we fared pretty good. Salem to the south of us had trees down and flooding. To the east I think they got hail, rain and wind.
