The power went off this morning at 4:45 am. It was a surprise, as I'd not known there was a reason for the power to go out. I sleep with a fan, and if the fan goes off, my eyes open. After the power went off, I heard the thunder and the wind. I heard the arc and noise of a downed power line or a broken transformer. Which is odd because our neighborhood has underground cables.
I went looking for the noise. It might have been a broken tornado siren. There was that moment when the wind died down all of a sudden....and that's never a good thing around here.
When the power came back on, I went back to sleep. The Professor called to let me know that there was damage from high speed winds. Could I check on the roof?
So I did. Our house is fine. Other houses seemed to have lost tree limbs and a few shingles.
We went driving to see the damage done, to get a picture, We stayed on main streets and saw many signs broken and many tree limbs down. We stopped at Sonic to find that their sign was busted. We got our drinks.

I adore that kid.
