We survived “The Big One” (storm, not heart attack)

We had a doozy of a thunderstorm yesterday (June 11, 2017, in Shorewood, MN) — lots of thunder and lightning, and the sky turned pea-green, which always worries me a bit. We and the kids and the dogs huddled in the kitchen until it blew over (Gillian and Mike were in Chicago). As it passed it knocked out the lights, which were out all the rest of the day.

Maybe California earthquakes aren’t so bad..?
