Woke up to this storm a little late and even then the main goal was to save the outdoor farmer from thunder power washing.

However, the oncoming avalanche was so inconceivably magnificent that the car was forced to stop in the middle of the trip. There was only a cell phone camera included, but it also captured something.

The avalanche progressed quite a bit and in the yard of the shelter it could be admired for another time. Then a gust of rain and rain hit me.

A little heat was in mind, as sets in this class might clump into large granules. There were still a few hammered roofs that appeared in the parking garages after the hailstorms around 2005.

On the other hand, there might be timber coming down the forest ... and as soon as we considered this out loud, we came across the first avoidable top of a fallen tree. A later drive in the neighborhoods revealed a tree that had fallen on top of the house, a broken electrical pole across it, and numerous individual falls.

We were still left with the whole family to admire the lightning. Perhaps the best avalanche that happened was the avalanche that spilled from Estonia in the evening of August 2008.

      Laajat myrskytuhot ovat lukuisia kaatuneita puita, lakoontuneita peltoja, irronneita kattopeltejä tai muuta vastaavaa voimakkaan tuulen aiheuttamaa erityisen suurta vahinkoa.

      Myrskytuho ei ole laaja, mikäli kyseessä on vain hyvin harvojen, kaukana toisistaan sijaitsevien yksittäisten puiden kaatuminen.

      Vyörypilvi on ukkospilveen liittyvä hyllymäinen tai rullamainen, usein selvärajainen matalalla roikkuva pilvi. Tämän uhkaavan näköiseen pilvimuodostelman ylitykseen liittyy usein puuskainen tuuli.

Tämäpä on jäänyt huomaamatta. Onpa komea pilvi.
