This is what our street looked like a couple of hours ago

A really crazy thunder storm came through. It's pretty crazy around here. There are trees down all over the place. This is just a tiny sample of the wreckage. I was at least 12 huge trees uprooted, several power lines and countless limbs down in the 3 block area that I saw. Every Tom, Dick and Harry who owns a chain saw is out in the street helping out. I saw numbers husband wife teams. Him carrying a chain saw and her with a gas can both sopping wet.Our street had 5 big trees down so I couldn't get home. I parked here and walked with the kids. We were headed out in our van when the storm hit. It was real dodgy for a minute. We waited it out parked next to a building so that we were away from trees and power lines. I'm not that jumpy of a person but this was really scary.The cars were having a hard time letting the fire trucks through. This one was honking and honking.It's like this all over the place.
