June 4th, 2008, we had not-quite-a-tornado in Arlington, Virginia. The storm knocked out power and knocked down trees all over the Washington DC metro area. Here, a tree crew carefully cleans up a giant 4- or 5-story oak tree that was blown over onto a Victorian house from the 1880s. Since our neighborhood had no power, no TV, no Internet, the neighbors were all out walking around and watching tree crews like this one.
This video was shot with a Canon PowerShot A720 IS still digital camera.
