We had a weather warning last night hail , rain , wind ...... We got it about 30 minutes into the wind and 30 min before it quit . Hours after the the light show started . The rain wasn't even all that heavy. Don't know what it dropped . The yard says it was an inch or so .

Mrs. smokeywolf and I sat on the back deck at 10:something last night and were treated to quite a show. Lightning and thunder every couple of seconds off to the north (central southern Missouri). Went to bed shortly after 11, then had trouble getting to sleep, as every 10 to 15 minutes we'd have a lightning strike close enough to vibrate the floor joists.

If I had a deck likes yours I would probably have the bed and TV out there.

Lot's of light and noise but fortunately the storm wasn't nearly what they predicted (guessed at).

Melting? Hhmmm . . . We did that in January. ;)

And I suppose you call that a winter? Uh Huh, yeah....

Well we are looking to get into some serious snowbirding starting in November. Take off November 1st or so then return about mid April. Hang out in the northwest with the kids and grands then head south to Arizona and New Mexico with a lay over in Southern California to see my brothers.
Considering letting the place freeze up. Still weighing the consequences of potential damage to the structure.

Weirdly cool today when we left the house about 11:00 A.M., about 60*. 20 miles east on I-10, 35* hotter and winds through the pass at 25-35 MPH. 103* when we got to Palm Springs, and stayed about that like that for the five hours we were tooling around art sites and a gas/C-store before we headed home. 35-40 MPH headwinds from Thousand Palms to Banning, so pleasant to drive into. 60* outside right now.....I think this is where we came in, eh?

Hasn't started here, yet. Getting pretty dark, though. Have a Special Weather Statement out for the small town closet (one mile) to me. Severe thunderstorms with penny sized hail. possible. Was some lightning, just to the south of me, earlier.

We did manage to get up to 82 degrees, yesterday afternoon. With gale force winds, directly out of the South. Sun came out and helped it along. Was 70 degrees at 5:30 this AM.

Was up at 0400. Lightning and thunder started a little later. By 0500 it was quite a show. Most of it passing about 5 to 15 miles north of us. Lightning was mostly over by 0700. Most wind coming from the north, but trees seemed to be bending over every which way.
