We heard a couple large snaps and crashes in the middle of the night...

There was also some close thunder and lightning. Some transformers arced off in the distance that illuminated the sky as all the lights in the neighborhood dimmed.

This morning we found another branch down on the deck that took out the picnic table and bird feeders...

Pretty soon we heard a firetruck siren approaching. It parked outside our neighbor's house. We couldn't see any branches laying on the house or anything. Certainly no fire. They initially parked the truck under a nice big tree that amazingly hasn't lost any branches yet...

Fire Truck 2

For the first time in I don't know how long I'm grateful to be living 4 hours north of everyone. We got about two inches of snow, the surface of which froze, but nothing worthy or getting the rock salt out.
