It was just a week and a half ago that we experienced winds so strong and so fast they they caused wide-spread damage and power outages, "cutting power to more than 1 million utility customers" across Michigan, according to the Detroit Free Press. 

It was also a week and a half ago that I was watching a live Facebook feed of the front of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Downtown Lansing because the winds were so strong, that they not only had they pulled the top part of the exterior wall away from the building, but that the exterior wall was also swaying in the breeze. Yeah, not something you really want to see a giant brick wall doing.

The church was evacuated and police set up a perimeter. And while the wall never fully detached or fell, it will still have to be taken down. Read more about the repairs getting underway HERE.
