    LOL - last night was soooo strange!

    A bunch of people reported seeing the sky completely lit up in blue/yellow for like 30-40 seconds. There's videos here: http://edgewater.patch.com/articles/video-massive-power-outages-in-anne-arundel Apparently, someone ran into a transformer.

    We also had an odd rainstorm of sorts, with lots of wind - kind of came out of nowhere.

    But the mall completely lost power and was in darkness, along with a lot of other big stores and places in the really busy area.

    We lost power at our house around 4am -- wayyy after the event in Annapolis so I guess ours was because of the storm. But it was a very odd night! LOL.

    The BF called me last night to tell me about it. . . he apparently stepped out of the house just before it happened. Although he claims there was sleet, not rain. :p He lost all cell signal about 10 minutes after it happened, which is even weirder. My calls went straight to voicemail.

    I have to say, though, the power going out in Annapolis seems to be a weekly thing. Any time there's a storm his power goes out.

    Maybe it's because I'm in the middle of watching an alien tv series, but I'd mighty suspicious of this "transformer" story.

    I am in GA, about 40 miles south of Atlanta.
    We had that weird blue/yellow sky thing going on here to from about 7:30am-7:35am yesterday morning.
    We also had crazy weather.
    Thursday is rained all day. Thursday night the wind kicked up something serious, I thought there was a tornado right on my roof it was blowing so bad and didn't slow down til late last night. Today the high was about 50, it didn't even get above 38 degrees F til around noon-ish. So yea, weird weather.
    And to top it off, yesterday was a BAD day for me. The F word got thrown around a lot here lol.
