In The Path Of The Storm

This is what things looked like at Arch Druid's mobile home court at about 7:30 last evening, following the terrific wind storm that hit Kootenai County three hours earlier. Arch Druid posts: "I just got back from the Kootenai County Farmers Market where the storm had already disrupted all the business. I get back home and this is what I find. I need someone with a chainsaw to come up to Oak Crest Mobile home park. A major portion of that tree took out a Japanese maple and landed on the neighbor's deck."

JohnA: We caught the brunt of it in Medimont, losing power from 4 PM last night to 4 AM this morning. Incredible show, the second such event in the last 10 days. I drove home from town in a downpour over the 4th of July and had to wait as crews cleared debris from Highway 3. We'll be clearing the same from our property today but nothing appears irreparable. I'm with Herb on this one. The state and utility crews do a great job during very difficult conditions. My hat's off to them this morning.

Question: How did you weather the storm?
