|This tree on 3rd and Fillmore took out two cars|
in Friday night's storm
The storm killed most usual Friday night activities for Clarendon, as most bars were plunged into darkness and cash registers would not work. After this strange weekend before the holiday passed, there are some clear "winners" and "losers" of this storm:
Winner = Silver Diner
Despite all of the rest of the block going dark, by some lucky miracle Silver Diner remained powered up the whole weekend. This gave them great business as their was a huge line out the door for them Saturday morning.
Loser = Lyon Park
By my estimate, Clarendon's residential neighbor to the south got hit the hardest in the immediate area. Some houses still do not have power, probably due to several huge (read: scary) trees that fell and damaged houses and parked cars. Luckily, the nearby 7-11 on Highland Street seems well stocked in bags of ice. Good luck on keeping cool!
