My hair is soaked, lol. I went outside to take down the umbrellas and cover the grill and smoker, get the cat in, turn the garbage can next to the grill upside down, etc. Got soaked but it was a really nice experience!
Strangely, the thunder is really booming now but the sun is out more than it has been for an hour.
I don't think we are gonna have a big event here in S. CLT but I just didn't want to take any chances since I had an umbrella ruined w/ a storm that caught me by surprise last year.
I could have stood around outside in the rain for a long time, except I started worrying about lightning. You just never know how lightning may travel. I heard a report that someone had been struck by lightning in Lincoln CO an hour or so ago.
