First worry/banter post, but feel it's a worthy one.  Just bought a home in Alexandria with 6 100-year old/~100-foot tall Oaks in the back yard.  Starting to get sweaty palms and white knuckles over the thought of 5"-6" inches.

Oaks are probably the least worrisome IMO. Think you’ll be fine

I’m also surrounded by yuuuuuge oak trees, but they‘re old so they’ve weathered many a storm.  Of course they have to come down eventually though...

i hid your double post [mention=9980]NorthArlington101[/mention]

appreciate it, can’t find a way to get rid of it when it happens on Tapatalk!

Hearing deep rumbles of thunder in N Arlington about 25 miles out from the storms. Fairly confused, honestly.

Agree in general. I have a bunch of them, many bigger than that. I had one uproot during Irene- oddly the wind potential with this storm may rival that. Not always easy to detect if the tree is weakened due to stress/decay, and ofc black ants also take advantage at that point.

White oaks your fine, red oaks not quite as strongly rooted

Water table can also be an issue. The property adjacent to mine is lower, has a heavier soil, and oaks fall quite frequently. Pretty rare on my land, other than dead trees falling apart from the top and eventually going over.

That line was pretty good, very heavy rain. Lightning was okay i guess, I was in the car at the time.

Apparently it’s capable of producing waterspouts too, if you’re near the water.

Happy hour runs so far look a bit west and more juiced across the board.

NAM Nest is robust.  And as we all know, it is the best tropical model out there.

Pretty crazy watching the expanding rain shield development on radar. Rain breaking out everywhere. It went from dead calm to windy and rainy in 30 seconds. Should be a fun night and day tomorrow.

Composite reflectivity shows the elevated convection missed by the lower-level scans. I can confirm here with some pretty good lightning strikes in the past 20 minutes.

Yup. Some deep thunder rumbles. Light rain has started for me.
