Voice Post: The squall line knocked out our power and batted our potted trees around, but we're

“Good morning, all. We lost power as a result of the storms that came through north Texas about 4:00 this morning. We're still waiting for our power to be restored six and a half hours later. Um, not much to report; we got hail, but I didn't see how big it was, and there are downed limbs and bits of trees everywhere, but we're okay.

Our patio trees took a bit of a beating, lost some leaves, but.. We're fine, we just have no power and once we fired up our generator we have no internet connection, so Vogon decided to drive in to work which should be interesting. Other than that, we're safe, we just didn't sleep too well from the noise and Laurel and I are hanging out here today. I'll post again there's anything changes or happens that's interesting. Take care all. Bye.”

edited to add: Thanks, polyhymnia, for cleaning up the machine transcription of my voice post. Our power came back on 14 hours after it went out, a few minutes after 1800 (6 PM) local time. Our neighborhood saw significant tree damage and a carport in our complex looks like the top layer of its metal roof peeled back.
