Mother Nature roared through here beginning around 2:00 this morning. Literally roared. And howled, moaned, screeched, and an assortment of other noises. The news reports are that we had sustained winds of 30-40 mph, with gusts up to 69 mph (close to hurricane force). Right now our winds are around 22 mph with gusts up to 41 mph.
