a tad windy today

Hi all!

Some fun today:

Final reports had some trees down and powerlines down just south of West County Mall, with the Des Peres Police Department on generator power from 4PM on.

We were still on the 4th floor at work (three blocks north and a little west) when we had power flashes, which we took as a sign to go downstairs. Heavy rain, a little wind, pea-sized hail, and that was it. It's a good thing it wasn't 1/4 mile north - it would have hit us!

The surface low that caused all of this is just north of us here, between St. Charles and oh, Hannibal. My leg and my sinuses are complaining mightily!

Everyone is okay, Lily is snoring on the sofa next to me, adn I'm outta here!

baseball time is here again - finally

Opening Day is today. Well, *later* today. As in 10 hours and some change.

To celebrate, I give you the Cardinals 2010 Season Trailer. I can't embed it - you have to visit the MLB site - but it is going to be an AWESOME season.

Go Cards!!
