Massive storm, widespread damage may be climate change sign

The massive June 29 storms dropped trees across all three lanes of Connecticut Ave in MD and wound them in power and phone lines.

Even the Washington Post is beginning to whisper about climate change as a driver for this superstorm. Video shot June 30, storms pounded the area June 29 with winds to 80 MPH, 90 in another area of the same line of storms according to one report. Just two years ago, in 2010, there was another massive storm outage from a non-hurricane event causing week long power outages, then more last summer from Hurricane Irene.

Until 2010, I never saw power outages of more than one day in MD or DC except from hurricanes-and those only with that kind of punch in 1973, 2003, and 2011! Now we get hammered three years in a row, and it no longer requires a hurricane to do it.
