Oustanding show by mother nature in the wee hours this morning. The temperature and humidty rose quite nicely this morning, helping to create some very loud thunderstorms. Great light show, buckets of rain in a very short time, and the house was shaking from some of the nearby strikes. The speed with which the storm passed through was pretty impressive as well. It went from dry and silent to soaking and noisy in what seemed like 10 seconds.

Speaking of storms passing through the area, Mr. Black is in town tonight. I wonder if that means there will be a beer or two involved?
