A couple of days ago a real strong storm system blew through here - deluge of rain, trees blown down, multiple lightning strikes (btw, I've decided that the SL must sit on ground below which there is a huge deposit of iron ... all of the trees around here show signs of lightning damage) - the whole deal.
A neighbor up the hill had a large poplar tree fall on his truck. I took a really awesome photo of it, but GIMP ate it. The two photos below are not nearly as impressive/scary, but at least they survived the GIMP meltdown.
And some flares!!
