The calm after the storm

Some epic thunderstorms rolled through the DC area this afternoon, wiping out power for almost a hundred thousand customers and wreaking havoc on the daily commute. The clouds that accompanied the onslaught appeared to expand at a furious pace, while the aftermath was quite the opposite. After the worst was over, things settled down quickly and an eerie calm moved in.

Below are a couple of shots from the roof of our apartment building... the bottom picture makes it look like it was a beautiful evening, doesn't it?
