It was a dark and stormy night
I got to spend part of yesterday evening huddled with Foley on her bed down in the basement with a lantern and my old walkman while the rain pelted the house and the tornado siren howled a few blocks away. Funny how with all the high-tech gadgetry in the house, during times of emergency it's the AM radio and the camping gear that save the day.
Our power was off for about 16 hours altogether. The ice cream, sadly, did not make it.
The lightning show however was amazing. The one sad picture I managed to capture doesn't do it justice; it was a nonstop fireworks display for hours. Made me miss our 28th floor apartment, just for a minute.
