Summer Storm

Monday night the greater Chicago area (that includes little old Munster) was hit by a severe wind and thunder storm. Having grown up in the deserts of Utah, I have been impressed by the sheer amount of water a Midwest storm can produce. This storm was particularly damaging. Fortunately, the only damage we sustained was almost 3 days without Internet, cable, or telephone service. As you can see from the pictures below, others in our neighborhood weren't so lucky:

I always say people in Utah don't need umbrellas, in Georgia you look like a real fool if you don't have one! My mom was shocked when she was visiting and was caught in the middle of one of our storms. I absolutely love them, as scary as they sometimes are, I am awed by the power of mother nature (and am grateful to live on the bottom level in case of any falling trees.)

Isn't it cool? I have thought that exact same thing living here in Virginia. The storms are so wet and incredible.

Aghhh! How scary! Nature is truly not something to be messed with. I'm just glad you weren't hurt
