Well, not really "the eye of the storm." This was just a band of mini-storms that rolled through one day. But it felt like the eye of a storm! Everything was calm and beautiful at our house, but very black to the north of us. In spring this is very beautiful: the vivid lime green growth here where we are, and then the darkness just a mile away.
We also turned on the TV to see the weather reports. They mentioned "Midway" and "Scholls," which never happens! It wasn't a big deal, really, just some showers and hail, but it was right at rush hour and it was a slow news day.
