Violent thunderstorms swept through our area Friday night. There were wind gusts of up to 80 miles an hour. It was really scary watching all of the trees in our backyard sway with the wind. We lost power around 11:30 pm. Saturday morning we got up and walked around the neighborhood to see the damage. Luckily we only lost a big tree limb in our yard. The neighbors on one side of us lost a big tree – it fell onto part of the wooden play set and a fence. The neighbors behind us also lost a tree. We walked around the neighborhood and this tree is just down the street from us. When it landed it took out a lot of power lines and some other trees. Also discovered another tree across the road on the other end of our street. The utility company showed up late last night and took care of cleaning up that tree but this tree is still across the road. There are around 90,000 people without power in AA County and our 400,000 in area that BGE serves. Said it could take up to a week for power to get restored. Sure hope not since we are in the midst of a heat wave.
Just before I reached home the temperature hit 106 degrees – can’t remember the last time the temperature was 106 – and it’s supposed to be in the high 90s for the next 5 days. What a way to start July.
Not sure what this is but thought it was really different
Spotted this in our neighbor’s yard on our evening walk.
Another beautiful day. Love this cooler weather. Walked to the marina tonight and took a bunch of shots of reflections on the water. Hard to decide which ones I liked the best.
Stopped at the Inner Harbor before work this morning. It’s getting to be a regular stop. Since it’s so warm, I’m not sure if I will be able to walk after work so I have added stop to my regular routine. Love the reflection on the water
Stopped at Greenbury Point and noticed this beautiful flower just off the path. Not sure what it is – something thought it was a trumpet vine. I just love the colors
Decided to take a quick trip to Down’s Park. Stopped by the Turtle Pond looking for turtles but it was low tide. Managed to catch these two guys
Since forecast called for another hot day – decided to stop at the inner harbor before work and take some pictures. This picture is a reflection of all the dragon paddle boats
