Cemetery after storm / Cementerio después de la tormenta / Cimetière après la tempête

In English:

Cemetery after storm ( Downburst )

My photos are few days after a storm passed the cemetery where my father is buried.

En español:

Cementerio después de la tormenta ( Reventón )

Mis fotos son algunos días después de una tormenta que pasó por el cementerio donde está enterrado mi padre.

En français:

Cimetière après la tempête ( Rafale descendante )

Mes photos sont quelques jours après une tempête passé le cimetière où est enterré mon père.

  2. Hello Stinkbugprod.

    Thank You visiting and leaving Your comment here. This summer we have had many downbursts and now I start to understand the power of the “Mother Nature”. Those downbursts are consequences due to extremely warm weather which has lasted about six weeks in my country.

  3. Bonjour Matti,
    J’espère que la sépulture de ton père n’a pas été endommagée.
    Ce qu’on appelle “le repos éternel” ne serait qu’une illusion ?…
    Bon week-end.

    • Bonjour Marion.

      La tombe de mon père est dans une partie du cimetière où l’orage passé sans rien á faire. Ces pierres sont élevés prisé, je sais que, parce que il ya quelques années, que j’ai acheté une nouvelle pierre de tombe au tombe de mon père. Merci de commenter.

      Joyeux dimanche.

  4. Oh my, how sad! All those beautiful old trees felled by the powerful storm. What a lovely cemetery as I can see it before the destruction of the trees. How old is this cemetery? It must have been sobering to walk among there with all the splintered and downed trees.

    • Hello Anna.

      Thank You commenting. The cemetery is old, it is most probably from the 18th century. The area where the cemetery is very cultivated and there are few manors which are old. The most peculiar thing is that this area is called “Small Paris” because in the 19th century those upper class spoke French.

      Well and back to the cemetery. I like this cemetery just to that reason, that decendents are lying among old pine trees.

      Happy Sunday.

  5. Debió ser terrible la tormenta para derribar los árboles del cementerio.
    Bunas fotos que reflejan lo ocurrido.

    Saludos desde España

  6. Wow, that was quite a storm. I am surprised there isn’t more obvious damage to the grave stones.

    • Hello Kateri.

      Thank You. You are right when saying so. I passed thru all the cemetery and the fact is that only few grave stones were damaged.

  7. My, what a storm that must have been! I have seen the aftermath of some here too, but never while one was in progress. It’s very sad to see the destruction of such beautiful trees and damage to the headstones.

    • Hello Montucky.

      This year will stay in our history books when thinking extremely hot weather and quite many heavy storms. When cold weather meets hot weather, it causes heavy storms. My father’s grave was not damaged.

      Happy Sunday.

  8. At least it was a storm causing the damage, it is much worse when vandals strike a cemetery causing more havoc than a storm.

  9. I had just been out taking photographs in an old graveyard when I found your Blog! What a storm! I have been reading about that storm after very high temperatures in Finland – the highest since 1914! Let’s hope that is the last one for this year.

    • Hi Jackie.

      What a coincidence!

      When talking about storms, one of those storms here destroyed all of one camping site with cabins, cars, trailers or whatever on camping site there can be. It seems now that hot weather is not wailing here no more. Can You imagine six weeks temperature varying between 28 Celsius up to the highest 37.2 Celsius, mainly between 30-32 Celsius. There where I live we got rain only twice during six weeks. If You could see our garden now, You were asking: “where is the garden”. Everything is sunburn this summer.

      All tourists have been asking that do we have so hot always. Well, not always last time we had it in 1914. Then July 9th, 1914 the highest temperature was only 35.9 Celsius.

  11. These are amazing photos…Nature is so strong and amazing. I can’t believe the trees were uprooted.

    • Hi TBM.

      Storm has power. This was the first time when I heard that downburst passed a cemetery. Once it damaged a camping site with campers.

      Thank You for leaving Your comment.

      Have a nice day!

  12. That storm certainly destroyed a lot of trees.
    But it looks like most of the headstones of the graves are still standing.
    I am glad that your father’s grave was not harmed.
