it's been a day of incredible, outrageous events - it started with a leisurely drive through chicago and we happened upon this:
Helicopter crash on tollway
not an hour after it happened - praise god all four people survived - we literally drove in the lane opposite the crash - we were positive no one could have made it. we were alerted to the fact that something big was going down in front of us as we saw 4 other helicopters hovering stationary above the site from miles away.
then a car burst into flames on the side of the road near sandusky as we past, and we arrived home to threatening weather - and the freakiest lightning/wind storm we've ever endured - one of our trees snapped in half, and bounced onto my father's truck - he'll have a dent, but it could have been a lot worse. our screen door blew into the house when i ran to see what happened, and then the power went out for about an hour.
as you can tell, it's back on and we're all safe, sound and home - hurray! missed you all!
