Last Friday night a storm came through and knocked out our power and what not. It hit our neighbourhood quite hard. Luckily the power was only out for a day but the cable, internet and phone was out until Tuesday. We were able to borrow a generator to keep the fridge and freezer going so we wouldn't lose food - we were all grateful for the cool drinks too as it was quite hot out!
It was a tree at the top of our road that brought down the power and cable. I heard the lightening strike and something crash - sounded horrible out there!
There were quite a few trees down in the neighbourhood. Luckily we only lost one tree and it happened to fall on the part of the garage hubby was already tearing down! We do have to move the tree but thankful it didn't do any more damage!
