We had power back at 5:30. But FLHS closed at 10:15 because part of the roof had blown off.

I took the pups out at 7 pm and I thought the wind was going to take them to Kansas.We had tornado warnings here to but it calmed down about 11 PM. Glad you did not have any power outages we installed a generator last year Since then we have not lost power LOL.

So true- buying a snow blower will definitely keep it from snowing. Confederate flags and trailer parks attract tornadoes, BTW.
