Very close last night 11.17.13

The storms that hit the midwest came right up to my neck of the woods. damage to areas by or around me due to winds of 125mph or T3 type if I understood the news correctly. The only damage I suffered was a blown away rain gutter and many of the already dead ash trees breaking or snapping off. Some areas are w/o power and others have home and building damage. if not to high winds, then actual tornado touchdowns, so far no one was killed.
I heard small freight trains sounds but kept awake until I fell asleep much later. I think my area was on the edge of the path of main thrust of the winds, but I did hear and feel them even if not as bad elsewhere. Well, thank God no lives were taken locally and I and others came through OK. Gsssshhh, if winter is going to be like this, it maybe a bad winter after all. ------Willy
