They kept talking about it on the news last night. I didn't get much of it, just the north edge. I was kind of dissapointed.

The storm was strong in Grand Blanc as well. We didn't loose power, though.

Ha, that happened the other day, we blew a breaker in the shop that knocked the whole building out. all the UPS'* throughout the building where beeping like mad! reminded me of working at McDonnalds! But they'll only last the usual 8 min or so untill everything shuts itself down.

Size of a BUILDING!!!!! DANG! i'll bet that cost a good chunk of change! Heck, the 8 min ones are between $100 and $200! and are about the size of a small stereo speaker!
