I looked outside and saw a tree bent probably about 55 degrees and freaked. I thought there was a tornado right around the corner for sure. That was the most powerful wind I've ever seen from a storm, plus it came out of absolutely nowhere.

Northern Delaware County ... rural.... STILL without power. I hope we are not the ones AEP is referring to being 5-7 day repair!

My kids in Athens without power, too. Good reason, they say, to have a big block party and grill the food before it goes bad. Resourcefulness like that is a true sign of a great education!

As if Athens needs an excuse for a block party.

Central Delaware County; I'm posting from a phone plugged into a charger plugged into a cigarette lighter in a car.

About 5 miles from here, I saw poles down with the lines twisted up pretty badly. That was last night.

Here in central UA, spent much of last evening dragging branches from the silver maple in back out to the front curb. Cable was out as well as the nearest cell tower, so no internet whatsoever.

But we never actually lost power; just a few blinks and that's it. So I got to sleep with the AC on. Luxury!


We lost power at the Temple though (up in New Albany), and so far it's still out. As that was my "last day" (last day of fulltime employment there), I suggested that perhaps this was the universe's subtle way of suggesting that my hours shouldn't have been reduced. (The boss didn't buy it. Alas. )

And it figures you would show up now right as I'm leaving the area. I've been here since May 09 and three regular seasons later I've never been able to find someone to go see a BJs game in St. Paul with me.

Just got back from Hamilton Road in Gahanna. This was the area where several large poles went down and trapped a lot of folks in their cars.

It looks like a freakin' war zone. It's something to see a line of very large power poles snapped in half. Powerful storm.

Funny that a storm this powerful could happen, yet none of the meteoridiots on TV got much of a warning out. Bozos.

Came out of nowhere because of the heat, I assume.

Anyone still without power?

I did get the chance to clean up and survey damage today. The anchored tree right in the front yard was completely uprooted; the trunk is probably 12-14" in diameter and it was anchored into the ground, and the entire thing was up against the house. The apple tree next to it lost probably 1/2 of itself right at the trunk. Two pear trees lost over 1/2 as well. The flagpole was completely destroyed.

There are four more trees that completely cracked fairly high up and lost a sizable amount. Two of them cracked over 30' off the ground. I was actually walking near another damaged one around noon and heard a cracking sound over my head...all I could do was squat and cover my head. A big limb dropped and hit the ground about 10' away from where I was; it would have done some damage if it had hit me. Another tree looks like it was hit by lightning, which explained some of the damage...part of it looked like a clean break, and part looked incinerated.

Soybeans look to have made it through without damage. Thankfully they haven't really grown enough to be damaged; that's the only advantage to the drought. The blackberries are all dead from the lack of water, but it may have saved the soybean crop for the year.

I snapped some pics before cleanup began; I may end up uploading and posting at some point.

Somehow, ours came back on this evening. Considering the area and its long history of random outages, I expected it to be out for the long haul. Well, that and the fact that the neighbor across the street has a tree limb directly on top of a power line and sagging it down a good 5'.

My power is off and we appear to be scheduled among the last to have it return - July 7! Two days of this is enough, we're headed for a hotel for the duration. Worst of it is, my brother is visiting from DC (also hard hit, but his home is safe!) and we've been torturing him with the heat and inconvenience. Of course, we're grateful not to have suffered the severe damage that some of our neighbors have endured - trees down on homes, cars, garages, etc. This is the last time, a generator will be ordered Monday!

No power in New Albany. Luckily I'm staying with my parents in Pickerington who have power. Seen estimates as late as July 8th for it to return. No enjoying this but I suppose it could be worse.

Looks like additional storms taking aim on Columbus. Batten down the hatches.

Just wish the best for all, especially our fellow posters. Be safe.

Mine flickered on and off 7 times, but seems like we're good to go now.

Came home to find that we had lost power again. AEP is saying it will be back by the 3rd. Not good news when you work from home.

How in the world did a CBJ jersey get in that movie when Vince Vaughn is a main character? I figured there would be Blackhawks garb everywhere....just like in almost every other recent VV movie.

Fixed. And Kallio beat you to it about three pages back.
