Here's a short piece of video I put together from yesterdays slightly windy day: https://vimeo.com/102292995 (just under 3 min). Our neighbour had three trees uprooted and the largest fell on his shed, leaving it worse for wear (it would have been totally crushed if the main trunk had hit it). I missed one moment when some of the trees were bent at almost 45 degrees. Just before the gusts would hit, we’d hear a nose in the distance like rolling thunder and then 10 or so seconds later the blast would come through. Today it's just freezing and snow down to 400m.

This is our neighbour's yard at the moment with, I think, five trees now down and at first I thought it had snowed, but it was just hail. However, the temperature is about 1C at the moment, so it could still snow.

I got off the train tonight to find the recent hail had left my station blanketed in white. Not just a little white - the hail was about 3 cm thick on my car. Around me people pulled out their phones to take pictures; unfortunately I had neglected to put a fresh battery in my Pen, so no images here.

What camera did you do that video with?

Drought had pretty much killed most of one of my backyard trees, and about a month or so ago we had some storms that blew a lot of the dead branches off and made a mess of my yard.

I had to have that tree trimmed down a lot.

But nothing like what you showed here in your video and still shot.

That was shot with the E-M1 and 7-14mm (first part) and 14-35mm (second part). Vimeo makes the video a bit mushy (more so if HD isn't turned on), it's a lot better in the original format.

Our property is strewn with leaves and branches at the moment, so we're going to have a lot of mulching to do when the weather clears up.
