Off topic: Wild weather

Yesterday, we celebrated Gayle's 15th anniversary of her 39th birthday. It was quite the day.

Mother Nature joined the party with a 3:30 p.m. storm that spawned dozens of micro-bursts around town. Two 125 ft. tall cranes were toppled at the Port of Jacksonville, 41,000 homes lost power and limbs were down all over the city including our little neighborhood. The good news is that no one was reported injured. We do have a 20 ft. pine tree branch hanging precariously over our roof that will necessitate a visit from a tree surgeon today.

The weather cleared briefly and we were able to sneak out for a really nice dinner with our son and his fiance.
