Huh, I learned something about me today...

So, I guess I'm a heavy sleeper. Apparently there was a massive storm last night with trees and debris crashing down, utility poles snapping, and a few roofs being torn off of local dwellings, and I was oblivious to it all... good thing it wasn't serious or anything - sheesh.

If anything, this answers what I've sometimes wondered - if an intruder broke in in the middle of the night to rob me, what would I do? Well, apparently not much. Guess they could turn the lights on, make a few phone calls, maybe make them self a sandwich and play some music while they worked and I'd be none the wiser.

Funny thing is that I have no recollection of the noise and chaos of the storm, but what finally woke me up at 4:30 in the morning was when I was burning up in the absence of AC and a working ceiling fan with the power out. And I remember being annoyed about 7:30 this morning when I heard chainsaws workin' away outside, and I was thinking to my self, "What the hizzy?" I still don't have power, so I'm sitting at the Corner Bakery down the street takin' advantage of the free wireless and a not-so-free chicken panini sandwich...

Here's a few images of what I saw in the neighborhood when I finally walked outside a little later.

I'm so jealous - you already need to use air conditioning. Jeez. We're supposed to get more snow tomorrow - possibly another 6 inches. I just keep hoping winter will end and you are already using AC. Wow! Guess that's one difference btw MN and TX.

I don't know how you slept through through that! In Allen, the wind blew the golden arches right off the MickyD's sign. They were lying in a pile in the road when I took my little guy to church Thurday morning for Mother's Day Out.
Those arches are WAY bigger than they appear up there in the sky!
