Last year we had this storm too. After Mother Nature lashed out her fury this is what I saw. Our huge evergreen tree almost hit my car and almost hit our house too. And at the front of our house this huge willow branch broke and almost hit the south side roof of our house. The scary part of this is that when the storm hit our place I WAS ALONE in the house! I was in the shower when all of the sudden a crashing and banging sound caught my attention. I looked outside and I couldn't see anything just a whirling of wind I was very scared!! Hubby was at his son's place and our communication is just through the phone. I don't want him to drive home since the wind is so strong many trees might fell down as he drove on the road. We don't know when a catastrophe happen to us, what I know is that we have to be prepared. Now I have a spare battery, a match, propane stove that is only be use in case of emergency. But with that experience I didn't think of all those things I only think of myself and my DH safety.
