While I haven't written anything in the month of June, it certainly hasn't been quiet... and I had a good reason for the 11 days of silence.
You see, I took a good old fashioned family vacation at the beginning of the month. Sure, it sounds fun, and a little bit of a break from my unhealthy weather obsession until you realize a few days before your trip that the Gulf may see its first named storm while you're at Disney World.
Sure enough, Tropical Storm Andrea dumped 4"+ on my Disney vacation, making it the second storm I've ever experienced... ironically both while being on vacation in Florida:
Back at home the rain came down for the first 10 days of June. Four different days saw nearly half an inch or more of rain, putting us at 2.21" for the month already... nearly eclipsing last month's 2.42".
While Canal Winchester hasn't seen a severe thunderstorm warning, northwest Columbus has with a storm near the beginning of the month.
Slow Start to Severe Season
The NWS in Wilmington posted this tweet while I was on vacation chronicling our very slow start to the server weather season. In fact, the slowest start ever:
Think it's been a quiet start to the severe weather season here? How about the quietest on record! #ohwx #inwx #kywx twitter.com/NWSILN/status/…— NWS Wilmington OH (@NWSILN) June 2, 2013
