I was in the path of a derecho yesterday. It was pretty scary actually. Never seen it get dark that fast. My city's electricity was out for 26 hours and so many trees down and roofs damaged. Besides helping make sandwiches for city and county crews today, I had nothing else to do but read while I waited. I read a fantasy and a sci fi. Both 2nd books in their series and both picks. They helped me get through the tense wait.
