    Oh Christ

    We just had, and are still having the most godawful thunderstorm ever in Gettysburg

    9:20, I'm cleaning up, waitress is finishing up, it's raining and thundering, the walls are shaking, thinks are falling off the walls

    Power goes out

    I have never heard screaming so loud

    So I have to go save the waitress from the scary scary darkness

    I finish cleaning up an entire resteraunt with a mini maglight strapped to my head witha bandana, fun!

    A waitress comes in to double check and lockup, she yells in so I don;t think she's a bandit.

    I try and get ahold of me mah, to see if she's alright

    No answer

    Call my boss, tell him all hell's breaking loose, he doesn't seem too concerened, which is understandable

    So I drive home in the rain, which is incredibally fun with no lights. Cops everywhere, electricians everywhere, firemen, linemen, city workers.

    Trees everywhere.

    I get home, and the tree in our front yard decided to lay down on the porch

    ****

    Then I go back to work, finish up at 11:30 (usually get done at 9:30)and drive around. I swear 100+ trees are down, streets are flooded.

    Our roof is destroyed. No real damage other than that though.

    I'll have pics soon, and a lot more tomorrow

    It's a better view from the driveway but I didn't want to climb over the tree again

    We got nails with high winds and rain earlier. According too the news, it looks like more storms over the next few days. Pine Ridge has had Tornatos the last couple of days.
