crazy storms

This is what the view from my office normally looks like:

Just before leaving today, it looked like this:

And about 3 minutes later, the rain came down, and I could barely see across the river:

My FWW got the play-by-play over the phone, so I thought she ought to get to see the photos too. Local peeps: this storm lasted about 15 minutes and took down 2 trees on M-Drive.

  • Cool photos. In the Financial District, it was pitch black with hail pelting our windows when it first started.

  • I miss summer thunderstorms. Not the humidity or the safety and property damage worries that they can bring, though.

  • hubby said he almost got washed away on his way to the car from work the other day. Did you get hail there? We got hail!

  • Oh, we saw that "shelf cloud" coming in from out here at the Air Force base in Bedford. I was on 128 and it started raining--- then golf ball sized hail for about 2 exits. It was crazy!!!
    I was completely drenched running from the car to the house.

    You have such a nice view from your new office! (jealous)

  • Yeah, it took me about 2 hours to get home from Woburn last night. Washington Street was totally flooded and cars were stalled out everywhere so it took me almost an hour just to get out of the (also flooded) parking lot. Fun times.

  • Wow! That's some drama!

  • Wow! Where were the trees? We had a huge storm at my house too. Winds were whipping the trees back and forth, birds were hiding, it was an amazing torrent.

  • I was very lucky--I left work a little early and got to North Station JUST as the heavens opened up. It was a very creepy trip home, and of course my umbrella was useless once I got out. But at least there weren't any trees blocking the way!

  • What a great view you've got now ... weather wise especially. Well I was fortunate and was on the train when the heavens opened up and it was over by the time I got to my stop. But the hail missed Salem anyway!

  • Crazy! I'm having flashbacks to our past month of weather. Just got the insurance check for the $1000 of hail damage to my car...

  • That was a completely crazy storm, wasn't it? I love summer thunderstorms, it was a nice welcome back to the world of weather.

  • I think there must have been hail in Westford. We were away in NYC until last night but all my lettuce is flattened and the squash and potato leaves are full of holes.
