Our fair city just barely missed being messily destroyed by the most amazingly violent storm last night, I’m sure of it. There’s no sign of it in the news this morning – no flattened forests, no farm meadows littered with electrocuted livestock – but it made more noise and generated more lightning than any storm I’ve ever personally laid eyes on. Watching it through the screen door of our porch as it passed to the south, it sounded as if all the skyscrapers in all the cities of America were tumbling down.
