Bad Storm Video

28 08 2006

Last night (about 4:00 PM) we had unexpected bad thunderstorm in Dallas area for less than one hour. It also caused my area electric outage for about 30 minutes. All is fine now — nothing serious but you will see this one with so many branches (small and big) fell off trees just in one resident street. Must be really strong wind during this time!!

Sorry about sloppy video, I did it with my PocketPC XV6700 — at least you get the idea.
