Monday morning the 11th of July , 2011, we had a derecho pass through Northern Illinois.
We didn't get it as bad as neighboring towns - 800,000 people affected. Scores of trees and power lines down.
As of Friday there were still a few people without power. I was lucky to only be without power Monday.
This was taken Monday evening. The storm was long gone but after a sunny and pleasant afternoon and evening, the eeire looking clouds followed. Plenty of time to take pics since with no power there wasn't much to do inside.
