It is officially a "heat wave" here if you have 3 consecutive days above 90F (30C). Today is Day 4. Tonight we have just had a huge tropical thunderstorm, obviously came up from the Caribbean. More than an inch of rain in a few minutes, the rain falling sideways at one point. and lots of lightning. here's some photos; a couple of spectaculr forks which i failed to capture but lots of light. they sure know how to do severe weather here. I can kind of understand the appeal of being a storm chaser.
During the lightning:
ambient light at 10 pm
