Disaster on the east coast this week

A Derecho hit the east coast a few days ago.

What's a Derecho?
Here's a link that explains why many parts of the east coast are still without electricity -- in 100 degree weather!  We were lucky -- most of the problems with trees down and loss of electricity were south of us.  We just have lots of twigs and branches all over our property -- plus one large tree limb which is currently crushing some yew bushes. Our house and cars were not damaged, thank heavens.

Fascinating, Wendie! I had never heard the term "derecho" applied to these storm phenomena. Thanks for the post!
