A La Derecho
A lot of people are freaking out about this storm. How bad is it going to get?

No one is certain. Since the first round got here later than forecast, might not get as much sun so the main event may not be as strong as thought last night. Most forecasts have been in agreement all week that conditions likely will not favor producing a derecho, or at least not like last year's. That does not rule-out one happening. Strong to severe winds are very possible, if not likely...while not a derecho, we well know the kind of havoc they can wreak. With the ground as saturated as it is, trees coming down is pretty much a given if hit with 50+ mph wind gusts.
Best advice: Don't get worked up. If you have an outside space, bring things inside and secure things that can't as best you can. Be prepared for possible power outages lasting several days if you're not in the downtown core. Keep tabs on the weather reports. If a warning is issued for where you are, take shelter immediately.

Lights flickered in our neck of the woods in eastern Loudoun County. The intense part of the storm was pretty intense, but very, very short in duration.
Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
