Usually I wake up to the littlest thing, but I guess I was out cold last night! I remember hearing a little thunder last night, but I was exhausted and didn't stay up late at all. The family just got back from the east side of the state last night for my dad's 60th birthday party. For some reason the drive home from the east side always takes all the energy out of me.

So when I got up this morning I realized it had rained last night because the windows and my gate were a little wet. No more than a block away I see this! WOW, was that from the wind? Was it hit by lightning in the thunderstorm?

Once I got into work, I see on the news it was a bad storm across the entire west side of the state and about 90,000 Consumers Energy customers lost power last night. They are saying the power should be back by late Wednesday.
