[QUOTE=jasonp;303774]Friday in the Washington DC area was 104F. After freakishly powerful storms passed through we have 4 deaths, 800,000 people without power and probably 80% of the traffic lights out. About 1 in 5 gas stations has power. This afternoon it was 97F and it will be the same for the next several days. The local power companies estimate it will take all week to get back to normal.

I've never seen it so windy as on Friday night; it lasted about 10 minutes for us, with gusts feeling like 50mph.[/QUOTE]Some impressive pictures here:

And again
 
Supposedly some more horrible storms blew through about an hour south of me, again. 90MPH gusts reported in a few places. It sounds like it was exactly the same track as the one from a few days ago.

This is a headline that gets my goat
 
Lies, damn lies and statistics:

"In June they had the month's worth of rain in one day."
HOW MANY DAYS DO YOU GET RAIN IN JUNE ANYWAY?

I'm in an orange area. We had out first actual thunder storm for the first time in two months today. (The last storm I went wild about was only 5 minutes of half-hearted rain.)

Tornadoes cause chaos in Poland
 
Nice video of a couple of Polish tornadoes. An impressive swath of demolished woodland at around the 35 second mark.
