We had a crazy storm yesterday. Winds got up to 90 mph, no hail, heavy but short duration of rain. I haven’t checked the gauge yet but I doubt we got 1/2”. Power outage for about 6 hours. Even affected my cell phone. It seems the local cell phone tower went out, too. Couldn’t make phone calls or get on the internet.

No damage to our property but I’ve heard stories of a lot of tree uprooted, transformers blown and power lines broken.

High winds here, too, but nothing like 90 mph, thank goodness. Part of town was without power for a while, but not us. Got about a half-inch of rain out of it. Twisters kicked up as the line entered Arkansas, a friend said.
