I wasn't able to articulate how fierce the storm was but after
hearing about the tree fall I was glad we did not make it. Still
felt guilty but lucky. Heavy rains followed by high winds are
noterious for taking perfectly healthy trees to an early retirement.
I'm just glad ED and Dave were unharmed. The squall line you
attempted to drive through hit right after our phone conversation.
Knocked out our power and blew limbs all over the road. Definantly
not safe to be driving in. Maybe we can hit the next SEHHA
