I could have a new picture for this forum from this past Sunday. We had a heavy rainstorm with a bit of wind and lightning during dinner, and the shifting winds managed to take out two trees in the glen behind our house. One was simply snapped off a good 25 feet above the ground (a beech tree, perhaps), and it fell into a locust (like fell on my house recently) and broke off it's two trunks well above the gound too. It's impressive looking.

I'm not sure yet if my photos do it justice, I haven't downloaded them. It is hard to find the right vantage point and angle to try to convey the scene properly.
