About midnight last night, a strong line of storms rolled through this area. High winds and a lot of rain. All OK at my house, but all the way to work this morning, I saw the streets were covered with leaves, twigs, and the remains of where tree branches had been on the road. I saw one HUGE oak tree less than a 1/2 mile from my house that had been toppled.

Looks like that storm line is now in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. Hope everyone is OK! Stay safe!

Just heavy downpours, some hail (got my sqush plants), and LOTS of extremely intense lightning. We did need the rain. Dale, you fare OK?

Terrible lightning here around 7:30 am. One of the worst electrical storms I have seen in years. Most of it was hitting trees, etc. but we had at least two water strikes on the lake about 1/2 mile from house. Those are really spookey. You can tell them from ground strikes, because the flash and thunder are almost instantanious. And the thunder sounds like a high powered rifle right next to you. Not to mention the OZONE smell in the air.


Regards, George

Hope you all remain safe. There sure has been a lot of bad weather tracking through the same areas this year.

Glad everyone is alright. About a week ago, there was a heck of a light show here too. It was the kind that was almost constant Speer webs of light across the sky. Awesome to watch. Little scary to be out in.

Had plenty of lightning with the storms this morning. Think they are headed more towards Ft. Smith, Ark. Heat index will be around 105 later.

P.S. Looks to be expanding and heading for you, Nra1ifer.

My best half and I were mowing the yard this morning. Got it finished just as the real rain and wind got here. As it was, we were mowing in some sprinkles most of the time. It has quieted down a lot now, but it's still raining lightly. Good for the garden!
