When the power went out, I was about an hour into a session of Wind Waker. Have recovered most of my progress since.

Played cards with sister for most of the evening. Started up grill and cooked hot dogs for family. Played cards by candlelight with sister and parents in the evening. Read by flashlight for a couple hours, slept.

In the morning, I woke up, determined the power was still not on, but discovered that it was on on the other side of town. Went to a very packed Chili's for brunch. Had very good BBQ/bacon burger. Came home, rain started. Back yard struck by lightning...
Three pictures of the tree and bark blown off of the tree. Note light spots on tree...

A squirrel was in the tree when it was hit. Likely killed instantly. Seemed to have been clutching the tree when the lightning struck...

Then packed for trip. Power came on at 4:10 or so; left for trip (picked up by friend) at 4:30. Will post about trip later...
