We had yet another line of violent thunderstorms roll through yesterday, one storm right after another. Tim went a couple miles north to pick up truck parts, and ran into hail.
But at one of the properties, a tree came down, knocked an electric pole sideways (I reported the fact that the guy wire was on top of the ground back in April). The wires were ripped away from the house. That may be because of the tree falling, or the trampoline which blew in from three properties away. Who knows?) Those wires were laying across a vehicle. Power was off in the house which caused a flood in the basement once the sump pump quit.
There was a burning smell in the house. The fire department came and gave the all-clear, and said they'd notify the electric company that there was a major problem.
This morning, the tree people came and were very unhappy to find that they had a tree in a live line.
Tim took the day off work to fix what he could, but there's a lot we can't be sure of until the power is turned back on. Which might be a couple days.
More thunderstorms in the forecast, but it seems like the worst of it is over.
