    ... My phone line has been dead for over half an hour now.

    Intense, close lightning caused a minor outage and killed the phone line.

    Luckily the power is still on, and the internet is connected via internet data stick, so I can still contact family members to let them know the animals and I are okay.

    I'm even getting video of as much of the storm as I can. [​IMG]

    Hope you keep safe, and your animals too!

    Good thing you can still contact your family.

    If it would rain here, even a little bit, I wouldn't be cursing it. I'd be outside enjoying it.
    Stay safe.

    Dog stuck to me like glue the entire time.

    The storm only lasted an hour or so, but boy did it wreak havoc.

    Phones still don't work. When I go to dial, there's a low-pitched static noise.

    Quite a few times there was lightning that came really close to the house. One time the thunder made me jump (takes a lot to startle me).

    Apparently there are more thunderstorms on the way... but hopefully there are no more outages, because I just reset the stove and microwave clocks! [​IMG]
