I have been gone the last two days. As you may have seen in the news that giant storm cell that passed through Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan? Yeah, we were in that.
On Monday we drove to Schaumsburg to spend the night as my kids were flying in from Orlando to Midway on Tuesday. We thought it would be fun to get away for one night since we haven’t gone anywhere in the past 6 months. We saw some lightening off in the distance as we were driving in but there was no rain or anything. It was super dark and we had heard it was supposed to storm but we were hoping to beat it. Just as we pulled into the hotel and opened our doors we heard the storm alarms going off all around us. It was so humid and hot you couldn’t breathe. We grabbed everything and got into the hotel just as it unleashed. It was wild. Hail, rain, wind, all happening at once. It was scary for a bit. But, we made it just in time into the hotel.
Then we watched the storm on the news go across Lake Michigan to hit our area. There were 53,000 people without power in our area when it was all over. They are expecting most people won’t get power until Friday. We were very lucky. We were in a small pocket that still had power.
How does this relate to corn salsa? Not at all but we are good and back home to cook!
