Storms can do a lot of damage.

On Friday eneving, there was a storm that came through where I live(Sidney). It came out of no where. Me and my mom had just got home from a very long week of Girl Scout Day Camp. The last day is what we call water day(basically we go to the city pool). As soon as the storm hit, most of the town except for the hospital and the local Wal-Mart lost power and a few residential houses. We didn't have power from 4:30pm on Friday evening until 5:00pm today, Saturday. The winds took down signs, trees, and power lines. Me and my mom went to the next city(Piqua) which is about 15 minutes to see if any resturants had any power and they did. They where packed. Even the gas stations. Our city was like a ghost town, when the power went out, so did the stop lights. Only 2 or 3 working. It was like a ghost town. There where cars that where going through the stop lights like they weren't even there. During that storm, I really thought there was going to be a tornado coming through. But the sirens didn't sound. And it's supposed to be in the 90's again. Increadibly hot. I really, really, really hope that a storm like that will never come through again.

    Yeah. This year we had a really mild winter with hardley any snow. Only 2 2hr delays this year! No snow days either! And we're in a drout again. So I guess the storm was kinda a good thing and a bad thing. The power did go out this time. I know in the past, we had some really bad storms but no tornados actually accoured, just high winds and hail and rain. One of the trees just a block up from where I live a tree was knocked over either by the lighting or winds or both.

    True Story! You guys are pretty Brave and Balsy to be living out in twister country especially in the stormy season! And I've seen trees up here get uprooted too in my old neighboorhood where I grew up I was down there visiting my Aunt and in the middle of he night in a wind storm the neighboor's tree was uprooted.. And that's a good sign power didn't go out ...the weather your describing to me reminds me of my home in the winter it was bipolar this year sunny some days then windy cold rainy snowy others.... But that's the desert for you eh?

    Same here. Another stom came through today but the power didn't go out this time. But, just by looking at the clouds and all the thundering and lighting, I searsealy thought there was a tornado coming. The winds and lighting were so bad that a tree a block up, was completly nocked over. Even weirder, is that Ohio is in the middle of tornado alley and we've never ever had a tornado. Just really band and really scary storms. Thank God for no "real" tornados!
