Photography: Hanna Visits D.C. and Alexandria
After several weeks of benign weather, Hanna decided to stir things up by throwing a good dose of heavy rain and gusty winds at the region. Over 24 hours would pass between the first clouds from the system and the last. During this time, many inches of rain fell across the area, and a colorful sunset sent Hanna on her way.
Keep reading for more storm photos.
Below are images -- displayed in the order taken -- from Friday evening just prior to the first showers arriving in the area until Saturday's beautiful sunset as the back edge of Hanna moved out.
Because the storm was a little less than expected as far as winds go, and a little further east than would be conducive to significant tidal surge flooding, the trip to Alexandria did not pan out quite as imagined (I moved here after Isabel and knew there would be no repeat, but still wondered how the town would fare with Hanna). Fortunately, the homes and businesses who escaped flooding are probably not too upset with the outcome of this one!
The sunset display following Hanna was quite brilliant, lasted a good half hour, and offered up numerous colors and shades as it progressed. After spending the day soaked, I was not up to the task of scouting out "the best" location for the display, but almost anywhere I pointed the camera things came out looking good. After the onslaught just hours before it was almost surreal to look up and see the last Hanna had to offer the area.
