Well, we finally got our power restored. It went out about midnight and was off all this time. I'm guessing it took so long to restore service in part because of the widespread damage, and because of the destruction that resulted from a tornado slamming into Glade Spring, down I-81, killing seven people.
I don't know that I've ever seen a storm like that one. The sky around us was lit up for hours, especially beyond one mountain (Brushy) to the west. Those folks over in West Virginia were getting pounded all night.
Anyway, we survive to tell the tale.
