It's sitting right here right now about an hour outside of you see about an hour outside of DC.   An earlier storm apparently picked up the easy up I had on my back deck, Carried it over the garage and landed in my front yard without breaking anything Or even scuffing the gutters

Guess I got lucky.

In NoVA, just about half an hour outside DC.  Power kept flickering last night but stayed on.  It was a mess last night.

Watched it roll through from my office in the city.  It turned dark as night for a few minutes, and the rain was blowing sideways.   The lightning was epic.

Entertaining storm.  Would watch from inside again.   5 stars.

I live in Fredericksburg and we had a couple of powerful storms; 1 about 6:00 PM and another about 9:00 PM. No damage but a lot of rain, wind, thunder and lightening. Amazing electrical discharges. No damage, thank God.

Spent the night in Reston and heard/saw what looked like a decent storm but it wasn't bad at all where I was. Just happy my flight home is on time.

Pretty sure they were hit by the whole storm.

Probably still only the third worst evil hero.

Difficulty; racist nazi versus rapist pervert versus 80s guy made real.

Why didn't Biden use a sharpie to redirect the storm??

TFA: Some residents in Olney, Maryland have had their property damaged by the storm

Please tell me Field of Screams is still there.

Drove through it on my way home from work. That was one hell of a shelf cloud in advance of the storm.

The sunset was impressive in Winchester:

High Fives his fellow Fredericksburgian(?)   Just Moved here a month ago (from Leesburg)  and the thunder and lightning last night was...impressive, to say nothing of the winds that must have been responsible for the aforementioned EZ-up Incident

/CSB mode ON

I'm a bike commuter about 2 hours west of DC.  Got to make the last 3 miles of my work-to-home commute in the hail.  Coulda done without it.   It took a hot shower, change of cloths, and cup of cocoa to set me right.  The rain was bad enough, the hail just felt like piling on.

Didn't get squat in Richmond.... appeared that there were two large cells lined up on the DC area...the stuff headed our way was eaten by Shenandoah Valley... had some good light shows north of here, but doppler only shows if there is rain with it : there wasn't any.

Where the hell was I?  I heard some thunder at some point in the evening and that was about it.

In NoVA, our power went out for a few minutes and the thunder made my cat hide under the bed.

Yeah, I was heading east on the GW parkway and when the rain hit, some asshole ahead of me slowed down to 15 miles an hour. Meanwhile, I can SEE clear skies just ahead and nothing but black in my mirror. So I'm screaming, to no one in particular, "MOVE IT, ASSHOLE! SAFETY AHEAD!"

I managed to outrun it for a good six minutes until the DC traffic goblins conspired to keep me stuck for 45 minutes. Then it caught up to me with a vengeance.

Was on the Dulles Toll Road and Greenway when I ran into it. Saw a pile of folks pull over under overpasses. Nothing like being on the westbound toll road during rush hour when a big nasty storm rolls through, by which i mean, solid white-knuckler...

Actually, no.. they just wanted to see what they have been paying for, for decades... pretty poor job done, if destruction was the intent...

Saw this from Fairfax County.  A fierce storm.  There were rainbows and lightning at the same time.  It ruled.
