|Yay for funny storm stories!

Ok, so yesterday Ari and I were driving home from a fun day at the Liberty Science Center. It was absolutely horrible weather with lots of flooding and fierce winds. Cars were being blown out of lanes and stuff. Ari and I were driving along, still quite shaken from the freeway ride (as well as the sudden THUNK of a falling tree branch that had hit the roof of the car!). We were very close to being home. Ahead of us we spotted two garbage cans that had blown out into the middle of the road. Ari, being the gentleman he is, pulled over and removed them from the road, throwing them waaaaay over onto a field to make sure they wouldn't roll back later and cause accidents. So, he throws them out and turns to get back into the driver's seat. Just as he's shutting the car door, we see one of the garbage cans sail through the air (in a perfect arc!) and land right back in the middle of the street. The can was literally was blown off of the bag it housed--we could see the bag laying placidly on the grass.
It's one of those sights that you just have to picture, lol. It was one of the most hilarious and bizarre things we had ever seen. Needless to say, we drove back laughing.
