Yep! We thought it was all over, late Monday afternoon, but the weather radar showed a couple bands of rain still to come. That did it, at 7:30 Monday evening a circuit breaker on a pole across the street tripped and reset three times in a row and our power went off and came back on three times. Then it tripped the fourth time and we were out for 18 hours. We were one of the lucky ones because we are on a major feeder line that got repaired first. Lots of pretty views like those Smitty showed above; but NOTHING like the destruction we saw in the 1998 storm where it took 4 days to fix our line instead of 18 hours.
