After the storm





Yesterday afternoon, unusually strong wind knocked down trees at the school.  Hopefully, no one was there at the time!

What a shame so many trees came down. We saw live coverage of the one in Phoenix last night on The Weather Channel. Hope you didn't have any damage at your home.

Loree said...

It must have been a horrendous storm.

Gaelyn said...

Hope you didn't get buried the dust.

I have lots of relatives in AZ, in Phoenix, Chandler, Florence, Eloy, Arizona City, Poston and Parker. They have all been keeping us informed via facebook as to these storms. So far everyone is ok and hope you and yours are as well. Awful, awful weather!

Strong winds indeed... I'm so sorry to see that, Diane. Beautiful trees... What a shame. Mother Nature can be so cruel at times.
Hugs,
Betsy

I wondered about you... hope your home and yard is OK.
My Friday post will be on the storm.
When I stood outside taking photos, not the best idea with over 1000 lighting strikes in that hour, it sounded like a train zooming by.

cheers, parsnp

Oh! Poor trees!

Debbie Lo said...

Gosh, I sure hope no one was hurt. That must've been one strong wind to take down so many trees!

I always hate to see trees come down because they're so pretty and majestic. :-)

I hope you didn't get the awful dust! My friend's property in Rio Verde is covered in it.

Stephanie said...

My goodness the wind must have been really strong. Yeah hope no one is hurt. Take care!

I heard about the dust storm in Phoenix. I wasn't aware that you had gotten hit with wind as well.
Jules and I once drove through a dust storm passing through Phoenix but it was nothing compared to this.
It is a shame to lose all of those trees.

Ouch! Poor poor trees. Luckily no harm. It's has been a long "dusting" day today for a lot of people!

It was an awful windstorm and the dust! Such a mess. The neighbors awning went flying over their roof and onto a power line...no AC all night. :(

It's a shame to lose the trees in a desert landscape.

Annie said...

I'll never forget the sound of a tree coming down as it yields to the power of the power of the
wind. Chilling.
