Adventures in weather photography
You know that storm we just had?
Update: Note that this is from the big storm we had on Wednesday (Aug 22), not the series of truly enormous storms we had on Thursday (Aug 23). Hyde Park has a surprising lack of damage compared to the news footage from the north side and northwest suburbs (and to the storm that ripped through sometime last September and took out half the trees in the neighborhood). A few viaducts and parking lots are underwater, and a few ponds have sprung up on the Midway, but that seems to be about it.
