Just north of us in Indiana, the storms have been bad this week: high winds, tornados. It seems that something happens to the strength of them as they cross the Ohio River. I live 5 miles south of the Ohio.

Last night, we watched the storms coming in. The lights flickered and then went out. We listened to our battery-operated NOAH radio, and learned that it wasn't going to be bad. We read a little by candlelight, and then went to bed in a very quiet house.

In the middle of the night, the lights all came on. Our elderly neighbor just across the road called and said she didn't have lights, and was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. Perhaps later, I'll see if she needs a hot dinner. I am going to make chili, since it is getting chilly outside.
