Microburst in Charlottesville

Before this spring, I'd never even heard of a "microburst." Now, we've experienced two in Charlottesville in less than a month.

Yesterday's storm was incredibly intense. The wind and rain started at about 5:15 PM, and I watched trees outside our office window that literally looked like they were spinning in circles.

Like the prior storm, the area around Rugby Avenue seemed to be one of the worst hit. These pictures are from a walk yesterday evening.
