The tree was about 90ft/ 30m high at one time.

Imagine the force it took to do this

It all started last night 6-3-09 about 8:00 PST, had a whole bunch of thunder storms coming up from the south, Jannie got some decent shots, my battery took a dump, lightning was everywhere, watched till we got rained out. In California, yesterday in a 24 hr period, we had 6,247 lightning strikes, with about 55 small fires. When I heard the hail at about 4:30 am pst, I knew something was going "Off" again, things were quiet, dark, we had no power, Hey it's the country we live with this ! Started raining cats and dogs, thunder , lightning the whole thing "again" on the way to work saw this, stopped took some shots, on the way home stopped again, took some more. We know the people who live in the house, haven't talked to them, bet it was a rude awakening. cd


To anyone who has visited this site "dial-up " has failed me big time, there are 19 shots in this set, only 13 have posted, going to try to finish the set. cd

Nubster Some of that weather came our way this morning, but we got off easy. Hope your friend is OK and not too much damage was done.
