    just had one hell of a storm hit us, had to get up and unplug all the electrical appliances,

    lightening struck the tree in my mother in laws front yard causing it to fall over and block the driveway.

    my wifes school is flooded. knee deep and the jack russel is swimming from the front house to the back granny flat

    our front electric sliding gate is also fried.

    hectic
