    Storms knocked out our power last night, a tree fell on one of my vehicles, and now they're saying we're supposed to get hit with another storm tonight, and they're telling us it may be as long as a week before the power is back on. The whole neighborhood looks like a war zone. Every yard has huge tree limbs scattered all over the place, a few houses have trees in them, and a tree also fell on my neighbor's Jeep, and the Deputy that lives down the street, his cruiser was under a tree this morning too.

    Tree fell on the truck in the storm... | Facebook

    The only way I'm getting on the internet is I have an extension cord plugged into the 110V outlet in the dashboard of my car, and I have it run inside where I'm powering a lamp, a window fan, and my laptop. The internet connection is supplied by a cell phone plugged into the computer via a USB cable.

    Sorry to hear that you truck was damaged, Jay. The derecho was definitely an intense system that moved across the US yesterday. I was actually flying home yesterday afternoon. Luckily I was going through Atlanta and not the Midwest or Northeast. The good thing is vehicles, houses, etc can be fixed and replaced but people cannot. Hopefully there won't be any more damage. Also, hopefully the power comes back on sooner than a week. Keep us posted. Good luck.

    Well, I just walked down the street. 5 houses either way from us have power, just about 15-20 in the middle that are out. Don't know when it will come back on, but I am hopeful.

    Well, around 9:30, the power came back on for about 5 minutes, then went out again. Things aren't looking promising out here.
