Last night’s storm was fierce! The winds were pretty scary at times (gusting up to 67 mph!) and driving around today, I saw considerable damage to property, power lines, trees, fences and signs. Tree crews are working all over the city to clean up the damage. It’s a mess out there! 

In addition to wind damage, there is flooding everywhere. (Sump pumps are working overtime, for sure). At one house, their front lawn looked like a pond! And, yes, if ducks had been swimming in it, I wouldhave taken a photo. 🙂

Not wanting to deal with all the mayhem, I headed over to Lynch Park to watch the waves. And watch was pretty much all I could do as the rough surf and wind made it too treacherous for me to attempt any real photography. Shame, the waves were incredible. 

So, I continued to walk around the park and came upon a drain in a stone wall that usually puts out little more than a trickle. 

Not today… 🙂
