I have never seen such destruction in my life. We had a major storm go through last night - right in a 4-5 block area of our apartment. There was a gust of wind that was 75 MPH (a Hurricane 1 level). The downed trees right in front of my apartment building and a huge piece of an evergreen tree that fell right next to my building are unreal! This was one of the scariest things I have ever lived through in my life. My husband was not home - he was still at work - so I just huddled in my chair with a flashlight on my lap in case and chanted "I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared" over and over again until the storm passed. How we didn't lose our power I will never know.
