Boy howdy did we have a storm last night!
They kept predicting storms ans flash food warnings were scrolling across the TV screen all during prime time– but where I was we were missing it. It was all just to the north.
This is what the radar looked like for a few hours. The heavy red area got like 6 inches of rain in 2 hours. And more overnight.
I kept watching for the storm but all we had was wins and lightning. LOTS of lightning. There was basically a flash a second– like the paparazzi were out in force.
Then this happened:
Yeah, we eventually got hit. And my building was hit by lightning, too! Boy did it scare Miss Phoebe. She was on my chest all sleepy then BAM!
My chest is a mass of claw marks today.
We only lost power for like 5 seconds. But it killed the building’s internet and evidently fucked up our elevators too.
The thing is, we’re already like +6″ of rain for the year and we have rain in the forecast for the next 5 days. There’s probably gonna be a bit of flooding.
And bike riding has been seriously curtailed.
Never mind bike riding, CB. Don’t you have a mini-Cooper? They don’t call it mini for nothing! You’re strong. Maybe you’ll have to carry your Mini to work. By the way small dogs with sharp claws leave chest scars, too. Good luck, mwg
Aw, sorry Miss Phoebe clawed your chest. I guess we’re fortunate that our dogs don’t seem to care about thunder and lightning.
