"every hour of fear i spend, my body tries to cry
living through each empty night, a deadly call inside"
- from storms, by fleetwood mac.

on july 19th, st louis lost its power. we were hit by a massive storm that came out of nowhere. it left close to 600,000 people without electricity, some for up to 10 days. the national guard was called in. most of the power-loss was due to fallen trees. here's a picture of the tree that knocked down our power line. it was uprooted. it took with it the sidewalk and demolished a brick garage. luckily, this is not our garage. and luckily we regained power after 5 days. we stayed cool as best we could. we took a trip out to the country and went canoeing. the dogs enjoyed the vacation and were very tired on the ride home.

Looks like it sucked the power out of those dogs too!
