Default It's the end of the world in Annapolis, MD

LOL - last night was soooo strange!

A bunch of people reported seeing the sky completely lit up in blue/yellow for like 30-40 seconds. There's videos here: http://edgewater.patch.com/articles/...n-anne-arundel Apparently, someone ran into a transformer.

We also had an odd rainstorm of sorts, with lots of wind - kind of came out of nowhere.

But the mall completely lost power and was in darkness, along with a lot of other big stores and places in the really busy area.

We lost power at our house around 4am -- wayyy after the event in Annapolis so I guess ours was because of the storm. But it was a very odd night! LOL.

I saw that! One of my friends is in Annapolis and posted a video. It was absolutely crazy looking.

The video is super cool . . . but someone ran into a transformer?!?!? Good god . . . some of the updates say it was a high voltage transmission line and a couple of feeders, yikes, I hope that was that windstorm!

Too bad it didn't end - the world I mean, not that town specifically.

The BF called me last night to tell me about it. . . he apparently stepped out of the house just before it happened. Although he claims there was sleet, not rain. He lost all cell signal about 10 minutes after it happened, which is even weirder. My calls went straight to voicemail.

I have to say, though, the power going out in Annapolis seems to be a weekly thing. Any time there's a storm his power goes out.
