Michigan Storms, Damage, Destruction

Hey tankers!
So after we recorded the Ep.5 podcast a storm coming out of nowhere bore down on us and we took shelter in the basement of our house, which coincidentally is where the studio is. It lasted a few minutes and didn't seem like much of a storm. although, what little i could see out the window, the 60ft tall tree tops look they were going bend and touch the ground. Some debris and dead branches and sticks landed in the back yard and we lost power. This is a pretty typical summer time Michigan storm.
It wasn't until Aaron left my house and called to tell me that there were trees down all over the road at a school not too far from where i live.
So what would any normal person do after a tip like that? well i grabbed the camera and hit the road.
it wasn't until then, being on the road camera in hand, that i really realized how lucky we were just to lose power and have a few branches in the yard. i lost count of how many trees fell on houses, cars, roads and power lines.
The reports so far say that we received a horizontal gust of wind clocked at 70-80mph and that we didn't get any tornadoes or even a funnel cloud. For those who don't know me, I'm a bit of a weather junkie and find meteorology very intriguing. I've seen 70-80mph wind before, here in Michigan it's not uncommon to reach these wind speeds once a season. The damage and destruction I've seen in the past few days and six people dead, it's hard to believe that all this was caused by a gust of wind. I'd be curious to see the data results on this past Sundays storm.
With that all said, we are still without power. I had to barrow a generator to power my laptop and get my wifi network up just so i could edit and post the show and these measly words on the tanked website. Our local electric company said the power should be on by Wednesday night but they have over 200,000 customers without power. If for whatever reason it's not on by this Sunday I'll hook the entire studio up to the generator and do the podcast gasoline style. Although, I hope it comes back on before then because I'm sick of have to dump buckets of river water down the toilet just so i can flush my poo.
Here are some pictures of the damage my immediate area. i saw worse but i didn't have my camera on me.
TTFN, -Scott
