My city got smacked, albeit in a very localized fashion, with what they're saying was a microburst. Many, many trees down. Our power was restored late at night, though oddly neighboring blocks seemed to never lose power...


First hint: there shouldn't be a tree across the bike path!


Or a small side road blocked.


Inspecting a lovely old Willow, pulled out by its roots.


Our street. Note the sidewalk levered up. There was a line of violently downed trees, perpendicular to the row of streets where we live.


Some flooding closer to Arlington Center...


Another uprooted tree closer to us.
