Major wind

Early Monday morning (like everyone was asleep) a major wind/rain event went through Quincy. We lost power around 2AM, got it back about 13 hours later. Trees down all over town, making a morning commute of 5 min into 20. Even today, people are still without power, usually because of damage to their home electric wiring. I was most fortunate - branches down, but the one big tree near the house (a sycamore) held.
