Yesterday and into last night the Rochester area had severe winds, clocked at 80+ mph at the airport. On my street, there was a huge tree knocked into the street, many homes all around me lost siding, my neighbor lost a beautiful glass top picnic table. The roof was ripped off a high school. In short, very extensive damage. Through all this, the worst that happened to me is a few small branches fell in my yard. . . the type that Morgan and Bailey like to run with and fight over in the backyard.
One street over from me, no one has had electricity since 2:30 yesterday afternoon.
Now I'm learning all the schools are closed because so many people do not have electricity and many schools were damaged. The Jewish Community Center has opened their facility for people - with proper ID - to take showers and numerous other buildings are allowing people who have no electricity to come and stay warm. The temperature is COLD!
Needless to say, I am very thankful that I escaped this disaster unharmed.
