This was the view looking toward the western horizon on Friday, June 18, 2010 - 3:27 p.m. CDT
Saturday, June 19, 2010 - The above picture was taken right before we got whacked by a very dangerous SEVERE thunderstorm yesterday afternoon. It was actually darker than this.

At 1:00 p.m., the temperature was 90 degrees -- at 4:00 p.m., it had dropped to 66 degrees. Oh, did I mention that we had hurricane force winds -- 75 miles per hour gusts in Elburn. I wasn't sure how high the winds got until I read the Chicago Tribune this morning.

I just called and talked to Avis, and she said that the roof did NOT blow off the Country Club as reported in various news sources....BUT, a roof was blown onto their grounds from across the street. It was vicious and nasty out there, too. Avis said that she heard they had gusts up to 80 mph. And I wouldn't be at all surprised.

And they say we don't have hurricanes in the midwest. haha I'm just glad that we got our trees trimmed last week. There's quite a few little sticks and leaves out in the lawn but at least, we don't have HUGE gigantic branches all over the place.

Better go. Lots of chores to do today. See ya later, djb
