The Memorial Day weekend storms hit homes and businesses hard, including the beloved playscape at Central Market North that is shaded by a number of heritage oak trees. (That store also lost power for several hours, which caused them to have to destroy some dairy and frozen products.)

For a while on Monday, shoppers at Whole Foods Market downtown were stuck when Shoal Creek flooded Lamar Boulevard. Here are some of the photos I found on social media of the chaos and aftermath.
