The storm to end all storms in Clarendon

Massive amounts of rain, wind, hail and lightning ravaged Clarendon starting at 6am this morning. I doubt anyone was able to sleep through this storm, as lightning struck close by and caused traffic signals to turn off and car alarms to turn on.

A telephone and electric pole next to the GMU campus was hit by a direct burst of fire from the sky, shutting down a portion of Kirkwood Road.
