As some of you may have heard, we've been hit by the most incredible
storms. Last night (today's Saturday) we had gale force winds.... Stuff was
flying everywhere, but all things considered, I think I'll let the US Weather
Service tell the story.

What made Friday evening's severe storm even more remarkable was the
fact that 16-18 hours earlier, a cluster of intense thunderstorms produced very
heavy rain, flash flooding, and widespread power outages over many of the same
areas in the city. Rainfall totals between the two impressive events totaled 4-5
inches. The spectacular picture here, courtesy of Don Armstrong, is a 6-second
exposure from early Friday morning.
