Charles Village After the Storm


When my family and  I drove back to Baltimore Saturday night after being away for less than 36 hours, the only clue we had that a storm had hit was a series of downed branches reaching into the shoulder on I-83. Nothing was out of the ordinary at our apartment. It was only later that night that we heard of the million or so without power in Virginia and the hundreds of thousands without power in Maryland.

The next morning I walked with my son up St. Paul Street and saw this wrecked tree, which is slightly more spectacular in real life.
