Last Monday (Aug 27), we had a pretty nasty thunderstorm come over our place here in Otter Creek. Our power went out about 6:30 and was out for just about 4 hours. The wind was really blowing. The National Weather Service said to expect 80+ mph winds and they weren’t joking.
Since the power was out and there was nothing else to do, after the storm passed I went out for a drive around Otter Creek. I didn’t get very far before I found downed trees blocking the roads.
