We had some crazy weather over this past weekend. It rained cat's and dogs, with some serious high winds. In my neighborhood some people lost power due to trees going down. I had 3 brief ( less than 2 minutes ) power blinks, just long enough to cause the cable box to reboot. I live on high ground - but just a couple miles away the river runs through a neighboring town.
The area where I work got hit even harder. A large number of people in the surrounding towns had to be evacuated by boat. On the side of route 80 on my way home I could see houses with water up to the second floor windows.
