If you live in the ‘Burgh, you know we got some serious storm winds & some damage on Friday afternoon. The storm hit one of my favorite places to take photos, Dormont Park. So, of course I got some pictures of some trees knocked over and a utility pole down.
To see the whole album, check it out in slideshow or grid form. We were without power for about a day and a half… and no damage was done to our place, so it could have been a lot worse. I just thought the twisted broken trees made for some good photo subjects.
I reported the downed utility pole to Duquesne Light on Saturday right after I saw it… went back to look around today, it was still down… no caution tape or anything up, so I called the Dormont police. Hopefully they send someone in to clean up, there’s usually a decent amount of people in the park, hope no one would come across the stuff & get hurt.
Also, in the same set of photos… nothing really to do with the storm, we hit up Chick-fil-A for breakfast & the use of a power outlet to charge our phones on Saturday morning as our power was out, I happened to have my camera in the car… I saw some kind of hawk or falcon on a light pole near the Chick-fil-A in South Hills. At first I thought it was an owl, upon a second glance I really wasn’t sure at all.
Anyone know what it is?
