crazy 24 hours in Howard County

First a hurricane, now apparently there is a hostage situation down the block from me! Roads are closed, heard an explosion. I am trying to be calm and stay inside, but every ounce of me wants to go see some action! They have started the noise again, we had a brief break for about 10-15 minutes. I wonder how long this is going to last! Apparently it’s been over 3 hours already, personally I think it’s been even longer than that!

I have already been out once earlier this AM to see any damage, tress down and such. Things look pretty good. It was amusing to see the snow plow out to move debris out of the roadway.

Do you have any news? How did you area deal with the storm?
