Church was cancelled today because the power was out at the building. It had been out for quite sometime because while Rob was there helping call people, the emergency backup lights went out. There are few windows in the building and the bathrooms were pitch black.
We have been here at home with the hatches battened down. Fortunately we live far enough from the building that we don't have an electrical issues.
This video clip shows how the wind is gusting. We have 35 mph sustained winds with gusts up to 80 mph. Rob had to maneuver around downed power lines and tree branches on his way to/from the church building.
We took the kids outside to experience the wind for a bit. Neither of them liked it very much.
