Power is Your Friend

There was a big storm yesterday that came out of the blue that ripped through St. Louis. It was neat and exciting at the same time. It moved very fasy and cause lots of trees to losse their limbs. The downside was that my power is out and has been out since yesterday evening. Hopefully it will be fixed soon because with no A/C it get hot hot hot.

A powerful summer storm slammed into the St. Louis area Wednesday evening, toppling buildings, street lights, tractor trailers and hundreds of trees.

At least 476,000 customers lost power, Metrolink was shut down and just one-third of flights were getting in and out of Lambert Field.

“This is one of the worst storms we can all remember to hit the city of St. Louis in recent years,” St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay said at a hurriedly called news conference.

The power outages will present a challenge to utility crews trying to get the power back on in temperatures expected to exceed 100 degrees today.
