    Really bad storm hit last night up at country house. 90 mile hour winds with pouring rain. lots of damage. My sister was on the rode and got trapped by falling trees and powerlines. 911 told her not to get out of car wait for help. She had to wait almost 4 hours

    I was wondering if you were in that storm last night. I guess your sister is lucky it only took 4 hours.
    Are you going up to the country house today to assess the damage? Hope it spared your house!:fl

    Glad your sis is alright. Hope your house is unscathed. You all have sure had some rough weather this year.
    Maybe you should move down by Bay in Texas where they just have tornadoes and snakes.

    How horrible!! One of my greatest fears is nighttime winds (hurricane, tornado, straight line winds...) and being trapped in the dark and unable to run or find a safe place. Your poor sister! And those poor people who lost loved ones...
