It is 7:45 am but it is PITCH BLACK outside, like night, and another storm is starting to rage. Last week there was a horrible thunderstorm and high winds that knocked devastated areas of Alexandria and people have only just barely recovered. People had trees through their houses, their cars crushed and overturned, lost power for days. We were fortunate not to be so affected. It seems unbelievable that no one was killed or injured. I cannot believe it is starting again. I hope it passes quickly without so much damage. CROSS YOUR FINGERS.
