I decided to park under a tree to avoid some potential hail damage. Hmmm....

Another tornado watch. Severe storm for my county, but don't hear any thunder. Weird...

All types of warnings and watches yesterday, yet I did not hear one clap of thunder. We did get plenty of rain.

This morning - pretty lightning and loud thunder prior to sunrise. It rained about 5 minutes.

As of 1PM, it appears another line is trying to form to the west. Could be last hurrah for storms until later this week. Looks like tornado day for the Carolinas.

LPL. You're late!

Storms passing you to SW, looks like on your radar. What's now in SW OK may reach here by midnight/wee hours - crawling on all fours.

BF - supposed to get in upper 90's here this week. Just the same, there does seem to be a hint of fall in the air. Must be all the school buses driving around.

Pretty nice just the same to see thunderheads in summer. Saw one kind of like it but the cloud had a round bump on top like a cherry on top of a sundae. Never got any higher. Made me wonder about an early fall.

Hi Tf,
Good morning. The trailer looks like fantasyland and the reviews are what you might call lukewarm. I might go see it this week. Just for curiosity and the big screen.

Hey BF - nope did not see it yet. I'm thinking of waiting until it hits the $5 theater. One of the reviews I read said it has half the plot of Twister. Hmmmm....

Still have to see it on the big screen.

Hi Tf,
Did you get to the movies this weekend to see the tornado flick? Wondering what you thought of it if you saw it.

Today - Sunny - high upper 90's - north wind at 5 MPH...

BORING!!!!

Starting tomorrow 30% to 50% chance of rain/t-storms for the rest of the 7 day forecast. Though there is only a 20% chance of that.

Hey Aug - I didn't see you sneak in here. My bad!

No worries - it had been weeks since I had heard thunder here it seems myself.

Cloudy, gloomy day here so far. Some light rain about to move through. Not too bad really.

Hey BF and Donnie - thanks for stopping by. Actually got some rain overnight! Pretty foggy out there now.

The temps may read below normal today, but the humidity is quite high.

Wow - nice photo BF. Maybe the bolt ran its way down to a book by Ben Franklin, eh?

I saw some anvil tops out the window yesterday, but no boomers or rain. Maybe today.

KY - was great seeing family and friends. Also great enjoying those cool upper 80's. LOL.

Maybe those little boomers on the radar will reach your house. ;)

Have had Boomers here, but no rain yet.

I saw you had Martinez on your local weather icon deal. There's a Martinez, CA pronounced Mar teen' ez.

Possibly "talk" at you before then, but have a safe journey. Be sure you have plenty camera batteries for interesting weather or other photos.

Thanks BF! Martinez is where I work. Hard to believe it is pronounced Martin-ez thought.

Yep - it will be good to see some folks I had not seen in a long time.

Gosh, Tf.
Was gonna drop by and tell you the blueberries in my fridge came from Martinez, GA and the climate there must be pretty nice if you can grow blueberries.

Sorry about your grandma. May her soul rest in Peace. The best part, maybe you'll see familiar faces and places you haven't seen in a while.

Slightly later than forecasted, but Arthur did turn. Good thing. Glad you got some rain.

Have a fun day!

Hmmm - told my Dad in Wilmington, NC if would miss him to the east... Hmmmm....

Well, it has started a bit of an easterly turn, but will it be on time? Close call.

About ready to get belted by a line of rain here too. Pretty dry and hot out there, so it will be welcomed.

Looks like a thin outer band of Arthur between Augusta and Columbia. Might see a sprinkle or two here, and a small gust of wind. Always nice to say hi to an outer band.

Quoting 157. Barefootontherocks:

Poor thing doesn't seem to have anywhere to go at the moment except onto the FL coast. Looked like you might've had some rain this eve across GA. Hope so.


Looks like it doesn't want to visit the beaches of Florida anymore. It is the sloppiest it has been in a couple of days. Still some big t-storm cells near it. To be honest, I can't tell where the center is on the satellite loop nor the radar loop. Looks like strengthening will be little if any this morning.

Had a nice shot of rain yesterday afternoon, but no thunder.
