ahhhh - I bet it did - it hit in Katie's neck of the woods yesterday afternoon. So you, last night, makes sense.

I'm in Ohio too! We had our power out for about a total of 4 hrs, The fence next door to me that goes the length of a park we have next to us was completely leveled! I didn't even think to check around my property to see if there was any damage....lol I woke up this morning to find all my screens to my house stacked up on my door step! Someone must have collected them for me and brought them back! Didn't even know they were gone! First big wind storm, and new 1st time home owner!! Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!

It came through here yesterday morning, and we had a mess too...not so much rain, but the wind howled like a banshee. There are lots of trees down, smashed cars and houses, and power outages.
The wind took the top out of one of our ancient oak trees, but we were lucky compared with many.
I'm glad to hear Katie's OK...I didn't realize it hit Kentucky that hard.

we had wind gusts up to 75 mph here in the Cincinnati area. We lost our electric for about 4 hours and we had a tree go down. Lots of sticks and branches to pick up but we fared better than alot of our neighbors (who lost roofs and in some cases big sections of their siding). We just had wind, no rain. It was a strange storm.
