Anyway, at about 5:30pm, the skies turned black as ink. First, the wind dropped to nothing and then got downright exciting. Next thing you know, it was pissing rain like a herd of horses! A few branches fell right outside of our house. And most of a tree fell around the corner from me.
Here's some crappy camera-phone pictures. (I'm going to have to figure out how to dumb-down my camera phone. These pictures may be soft on focus, but they're HUGE in pixels!) The interesting thing is that this tree seems to have managed to not damage any of the cars. It fell between them perfectly! (The cops threatened to arrest it anyway.)
