Southern Illinois; our power was out for a good 2.5 hours here. Very scary high winds, and no basement. My son and I were up freaking out. Needless to say he's not going to school for lack of sleep.
Wish I saw this before the fact. No net, no phone, no tv, no way to know what if anything was headed toward us. Felt like I was 200 years ago, living on prayer. And denial.
