A few hours before the storm began the whole neighborhood was outside enjoying the nice strong breeze. I tried to let the boys play outside as much as possible that day. The sunset was absolutely beautiful on one side and the sky was as blue as could be on the other. It was really strange. The storm was scary that night....needless to say I did not get much sleep. We lost power at 12:45 pm and on day 3 now we are still without.
