Rain, Lightning, Down Trees and more…

While looking at a building on the Canal walk last evening, we saw the storm come into the city. 2 hours later, the storms passing left the city covered in trees, debris, and a few cars driving through the trees. For some reason, the operates of the vehicles were not paying full attention as they were ramming through the trees in the road. One person with a very low car managed to go through the top half of a tree that came down on High st. Subsequently their blatant disregard for their safety had them pulled over by Holyoke’s finest.

This tree came down on High st.

For whatever reason, this man decided to stand there against the wind getting soaked by the water pouring down instead of seeking shelter.

This tree collapsed over near Nontuck st.


Pulling on to my street in Chicopee, on my way home, this is the scene we came across. This is a former neighbors house, which is/was for sale. I think the tree is going to now affect the asking price, just a smidge.

This past Sunday I was given a tour of a very interesting building. It gave me the chance to make some rather unique photographs.
