12 hours later
The storm that blew through last night left a lasting impression on Broad Ripple. There were 75 mph winds that hit light a freight train; one minute calm, the next minute fury. There was constant lightening and thunder. It hit at about 10:00 pm and lasted about an hour - that was round one. Round two began at about 11:30 and hit with about the same fury, except this time the electricity quit. An old analog alarm clock read 11:43 for the next twelve hours until the electricity came back at 12:02 today.
Now I am running around resetting things - VCR's, answering machine, light timer. Pictures in the extended entry.
We got four inches of rain in the span of about ninety minutes.
This house had an unwelcome caller in the night.
