Phoenix, Arizona - Storms

Last night a storm cell ravaged my neighborhood. We rarely get a sprinkle of rain but all was different last night. I had no bad damage. I toured the neighborhood to see other's outcome. 

It was interesting to find that my grill had moved about 10 feet. 

The older leaves were all blown off of the tree. This will make fall clean-up much easier. 

Trees down along the canal park. 

Most of the damage was with broken limbs. 

This neighbor already had the limbs removed by the time I toured. 

One of the big beautiful trees crushed the fence and fell in to the next back yard. Luckily we have alleys. 

This neighbor has a large branch laying on the roof but he doesn't think that there will be breakthrough damage. 

Downed trees and power lines blocked Virginia Avenue by Arcadia Montessori between 50 and 52 Street. 

The are young trees at the condos on 48 St and Virginia Avenue. 

The utility company Salt River Project (SRP) shows that power is out in the area but I only lost it for 10 minutes. 

The storms are expected to return nightly during the week. Great...
