Monday Night Storm





(There's a house behind this tree.)

It really is dark without electricity. I finally understand why people used to go to bed at sunset.

Oh my gosh --- is that your roof, Karen? It looks exactly like what happened to the Squash House during last years January wind storm! I hope everyone is OK and that the roof isn't damaged!
Take care!

WOW! Your poor area! It looks horrible, and there is a house behind that tree?? Hope things are getting cleaned up and everyone is okay!

Wow! Looks really bad I didn't even think about knowing someone that may have damage. I guess I'm a really bad friend. Do you need anything?

Hi Karen,
What a terrible storm that you had- all those beautiful big trees. We had a similar storm here on the weekend with over 50 trees in the city destroyed and counting...
We were fortunate and didn't have any on our property but our niece was less so and they lost one large tree. To complicate matters, they are away in Eastern Canada so her brother in law was able to help them out.
Mother Nature sure can raise havoc, can't it?
Hope you are having a nice summer and enjoying some good times with your kids.
Regards,
Anna

Holy Cow, Karen! Hope you didn't sustain any damage.

Amazing that whole, big trees were uprooted!

Oh my goodness! I didn't know that the storm was so bad in some areas of town. We had a little hail but nothing like the damage you had! I hope you are all okay!

Hope everything's ok with you guys. As I've been driving around town I notice these weird areas of heavy damage, right next to completely untouched places. Must have been some not-so microbursts from that storm.
