It was 2:00am and all was quiet.  Suddenly, roaring winds began to toss the cushions of our patio furniture and rain pelted our bedroom window.  As we checked the weather radar we realized a turbulent storm had formed just over our neighborhood and the rotation in the clouds was spelling imminent danger for our home and others.  We woke up...
