    Not here we're in a draught. But my daughter is currently at my moms house for the summer and they got hit.

    This pic was downtown where they are.

    We were hit but no pictures. :eek: (taking the new sucky camera back and getting a different one, is on my list) I think where we live in a deep hollow, saved us from most of it. The folks on the ridge top ... wow ... the folks up the road lost a large amount of their older (and huge) white pines.

    We were without power for about 24 hours, my parents in W.Va were hit harder and just got their power back.

    To put it in simple terms ... "What a mess!"

    Well I lost power for a little over six hours last night. That was terrible. I had to just stare at a dead computer screen and imagine the internet.
