With apologies to Greg C. (didn't mean to jack his thread), here are a few photos from the fast and nasty storm that went through here on Sunday.

This one done with an UUUUWA and a very tall tripod (or maybe it was done by NASA, I forget... ). You can see how compact the cyclone cloud pattern is.




Most of the minor damage has been cleaned up. The larger damage isn't so easy. (Take a look at the very left edge - you can see a pavilion tent there. This church had a lot of these set up and none of them were knocked down - go figure):





Here's a tree that had its top snapped off - maybe 1.5 feet in diameter:



Thanks for looking.

Ted

That was definitely a strong storm. Let's see, If I remember right, you had a stong winter storm in February, and now you get hit with a strong summer storm in July.

I think I'll stay down here in Florida where it's safer! LOL.

Well at least we don't have wild pythons here.

I was very comfortable in the outdoors here before you brought that up...
