It didn't last that long but it was awesome. Sorry, dee, thankfully we're washable.

It has been "crazy" hasn't it? Sure makes me miss the monsoons we had when I was a kid. It would storm every day, about the same time of day, and you could just about set your clocks by it. Now we never know what to expect!

Yes, I remember those days. I remember monsoon season being like that while on camping trips to Hawley Lake in the 70's. About 2 pm or so every afternoon it would rain. Then quit. Sometimes more at night as well though. Awesome lightning shows!

That sounds more like it!

Sounds about right to me. Early afternoon, every day. I miss that. Sigh.

I'd love to see this again. Guess we are SOL though, huh?

Got a gentle soaking rain near 9 pm last night. There were a couple of flashes of lightning but nothing like the previous night.

Looks like we're going to get a bit more tonight, and this one is coming through from the northeast

Last night was nuts. A house was set on fire from a lightning strike nearby. The lightning and thunder going on was pretty crazy, had to separate my two dogs and hold one of them and play 102 Dalmatians (it's a great distraction for some reason) until she fell asleep. Loved the rain but hoo buddy that was a strong storm last night!
