I am hoping to play catchup on sleep later today. We had a very large storm cell move through last night. I have read how 6 homes in the area were struck by lightening. Of the 6 of them, 3 of them are a total loss, 1 destroyed just the garage, 1 barn was damaged, and 1 barn was a total loss. All the news stories say that everybody that lives in these homes got out alive as well as the family pets. The two barns were used for storage so no animals were killed in there. Glad to hear there was no loss of life. Now the up hill battle for some as they try to figure out where or what they are going to do next.
We started seeing the lightening at around 9:30pm and then the thunder hit us heavy around 11:45 until 2:20am. The lightening finally ended at about 2:35am.
It is 69* right now, the dew point is 69*, the humidity is 99%. We have a chance of rain and thunderstorms late this morning, this afternoon, and tonight running at about 70%.
