Over the past few days the area has been hammered by severe thunderstorms. Some of the storms had strong winds and heavy rain. Power outages and road closures were common. This street in Frederick was closed after three large trees fell. On Monday the tree folks were still working, but the street was open for traffic. I did not see much damage in our neighborhood, though we got some heavy rain, lightning and thunder last night.
The lines of storms that have been moving across the USA have caused some major damage in the mid-west. There has plenty of wind and rain in the Frederick area with trees down, power outages, and some damage to homes.

I am retired, married to a smart, talented lady who once thought we computer people were geeks and now is one of us geeks. I have a long time interest in photography. We live in Maryland, about 50 miles from Washington, DC.
My main camera is a Nikon D3100 with two zoom lenses (18-55 and 55-200).
