Yahoo News is the place where I first saw this wild video shared. The McHenry Police Department shared this crazy video on their Facebook page.

According to the Yahoo News story, this early Tuesday storm knocked out power, but the utility workers had it back on within a couple hours. This also proves that you never underestimate the ability of Illinois utility workers to fix what nature takes down.

“Have fun resetting your clocks!” said the police department and not one McHenry resident laughed especially those that were late to work Tuesday when their alarms (and clocks) were off.
