The Weather Channel reported high winds and heavy rain last night. They showed cascading runoff that looked like something out of a nature documentary or a disaster film.


I hope Greg and all other AW.Org members are OK.

We're all good - thanks Tom.  There were some spotty power outages, tree limbs down, etc.  We live at the bottom of  a rather steep valley so winds are minimized and it's often hard to tell what's actually going on.  Our lights flickered once, but stayed on.   Lots of rain, but welcomed as we're still behind from a dry winter.  My mother recently downsized from her house to an apartment and her former neighbor sent her a picture of the Bradford Pear tree in her (old) backyard that had cracked in half and took out a fence section.   This was similar to reports from around the city.  The College World Series of Baseball was to have it's opening game last night but officials called it off early to avoid the obvious dangers of wind and lightning. 


Ornamental trees (such as the Bradford Pear) don't hold up really well in the high winds, wet snow, etc. out here on the Mighty Prairie, they usually do better in more protected areas.  All of the ornamentals that were on my 1/2 acre lot 19 years ago are all gone, broken and felled over the years.
