For a little while it rained like pouring piss out of a boot here, no wind though.

At any rate, wouldn't have wanted to be half way between my place and Jellyfish Joel's when things got wet!

We have gotten SO many tornado warnings (not just watches) here this year. It really seems to be out of the ordinary. It's pretty spooky. Glad I keep the NOAA radio by my bed at night.
