Just a quick update. Internet is spotty so there may not be much accomplished today, though I hope to get the podcast up soon. The damage caused by the storm is unbelievable — not just the scope, but the fact that the storm seems to have hit everywhere BUT my place. Reports from several blocks in every direction of me tell of a powerful storm while it was never more than mildly windy here. In a couple hours I will venture out to investigate and see what happened.
In the meantime consider giving to the Red Cross.
