You may have heard on the news that the midwest was due for storms yesterday and today. Yesterday it did get dark and windy but except for one quick thunderstorm in the late afternoon, nothing much happened. It seems that around here the bad weather is sneaky and likes to appear during the night time hours. At 2:17 this morning a clap of thunder woke me. The dogs woke and found different sleeping spots, but didn't get too excited.
When I first went outside this morning, it was obvious that we'd gotten some heavy rain, but except for a lot of small sticks in the yard, there was no damage. Then I noticed this two houses up the street.
This used to be a pretty big tree.
