Delfest 2009 - The big storm

Wow, while shooting the DelFest music festival this weekend I ended up in the middle of the craziest storm I had ever seen in Cumberland. Rain, wind, hail, rapidly changing temperatures, thunder & lightning....this storm had it all. When the hail & rain weren't coming in totally sideways, I managed to raise the camera to snap a few pics. Here are a few of them...

This was dry grass 15 minutes earlier

The aftermath the next day...all the trashed Ez-Up tents

The rest of the storm pics are here - DelFest hail storm

Here are some great stories from the storm - DelFest storm stories

..and finally, to experience just how bad it was, check out this video. Watch how quickly that Ez-Up tent gets trashed. Great American Taxi's Delfest 2009 set
