Wow. All I can say is that I don’t remember a day where the wind kept going like that. According to some reports, we had some wind gusts over 50 miles per hour around here yesterday. A couple of trees near me were taken down, and I don’t mean little trees. I mean big trees. Ana’s sandbox is flooded because I had to bring the lid in the house. It blew away a few times yesterday, along with the neighbor’s trash can.

Fortunately, no one was injured with last night’s thunderstorms. I don’t think there were any tornados that came out of all this, but I do know that Eau Claire’s warning sirens failed on Saturday night. That’s comforting.
