Holy wind, Batman!

I was making lunch yesterday and suddenly Graeme started yelling:  "Hey! our garbage can is blowing down the street!"  I raced outside right into the full fury of a strong microburst.  (It about took my shirt off, I hope the neighbor wasn't looking out his window!)

Sure enough, every recently emptied garbage and recycle can on the street was literally blowing away.  My neighbor and I raced to grab as many as we could and a few of the older boys on the street took care of the rest.  (We have such wonderful youth in our ward, they weren't even told to come help, they just noticed there was a problem and took care of it) 

I got my hand smashed by a lid blowing closed but otherwise everybody was fine.  Crazy, crazy.

Sorry about your hand!

That wind out there is crazy sometimes :)

Wow! That must have been something else. Glad to hear the youth in your ward are such smart ones. Gives great hope for our future. Hope you hand is feeling better.
