    THis is what I woke up to last night!

    We had a horrible storm last night. A transformer was struck by lightning a block away. It shook my house. It lit the sky up for like 30 mins.... Then another crack of lightning and another weird sound after. Lost power for like 5 hours.

    This is what was the weird sound after the lightning....

    I finally got it cleaned up. Luckily no damage!
    Decided to take down my timer!

    Thats not a nice wake up call. The glass top on my patio table shattered in the storm.

    hope that the clean up is not too frustrating and hope that no other stuff was damaged.

    Yes I am lucky. A house a couple blocks away a 20 Ton, yes 20, fell on the house. Was all over the news!

    Thank God!
