That Was Close
Yesterday a tornado touched down about a mile from where I live in Raleigh. The power had already went out by then. I can give a good guess of when it happened because things got ominously dark. The wind gauge on our weather apparatus (my family geeks out on all things weather. My brother will watch the Weather Channel like it's a show or something) jumped up to 60 mph. The worst part lasted a couple of minutes.
My mom's house has been without power for a full 24 hours. The power company said it most likely will not be restored until 3 days or maybe more. The news said nearly 2 dozen people died. How many were in Wake County, I don't know.
