Some of you may know that we had a heck of a storm pass through the Evanston area yesterday morning.
It roared through here around 8:00 in the morning, and a mere fifteen-twenty minutes later was simply a memory. But it left over 170 trees, or large branches down in Evanston, and hundreds of thousands of Chicago-area residents without power, and/or cable. In my case, it left me without Comcast which handles my Cable television, broadband and telephone.
But I'm more fortunate than others, as we had no loss of trees, no damage to the house, no water in the basement, and we still have electricity. As I write this there are still close to 100,000 Commonwealth Edison customers still without power, in hot and steamy condition.
Just to give you an idea of the power of this short-lived storm, here are a few photos of downed-trees in our area.
It must have been a bit of a micro-burst, as there was no report of a tornado or funnel cloud in the area... just localized strong-winds, and a lot of rain.
Hopefully, all will be improved, repaired and restored soon.
What a world, what a world!!
