Was one of these houses in the 7500 block of Salem? Curious because my wife saw on FB that the house of somebody she knows in Falls Church  was hit by a falling tree.

I think I’ve seen enough to say that this was the biggest storm to hit my immediate neighborhood in decades (better than the derecho).  Two houses with direct hits, one down the street from me and one a block over.  Branches down and leaf parts sticking to everything.  I bet we went 70+.

Here's the general location of the significant tree vs house hits that I'm aware of.  I put an X on Salem (the NW one), but I didn't go over there to check.  The Falls Hill one that we've been talking about was on Barbour.

It's up there, a bit hotter than yesterday but humidity is lower so it's a wash.

Was throwing the frisbee with the pup a bit ago and it's hot, really hot in the direct sun.

This is the only place that can literally waste this kind of sultry mess and go to fall with 40DPs with nary a shower!  In the Midwest those swings tend to rearrange yards and patios, sometimes remodel the garage too! ;)

Looking forward to my daughters softball practice at 5:30.  I'm stepping up as an assistant coach this year and am just dreading that tonight.
