Calm between the storms…

So today we have a flash flood and sever thunderstorm warning in my area… Looking at this site and the moving satellite images we appear to be sandwiched between the two serious hotspots of activity. This morning, around 4:30 or 5 am I was awakened by a lightning strike that sounded like it hit the front yard, and as I watched nervously, several more ear-splitting cracks resounded. Currently, the sky is bright blue with puffy clouds and sunshine. It’s a little eerie to know that by around 1 or 2 pm we’ll start seeing more of the dark-as-night storm clouds and lightning. Weather.com is also predicting possible hail and 60 mile per hour winds.

I’m preparing the basement in case we need to have play time underground this afternoon. More to come…
