The storm just hit. The building is swaying so hard that people are stumbling. Time to go home.

Probably a good thing you didn't bike in. Be careful!

Wow, here in Lorain County, it's still sunny and hot and miserable.

Scratch that. A mere 10 or 15 minutes after I posted that, it's clouded up, and the trees are barely stirring. *gulp*

Yeah, but... it only lasted 5 or 6 minutes! Mind you, it was a quite respectable storm while it lasted. Matthew and I were sitting on the front porch screaming "Whoo! That's more LIKE it! Just keep that crap up!" and the like. Oh, and I screamed random bits of Lear's speech at it.

I miss good thunderstorms...

It was the first wave, as you undoubtedly know by now.

Yeek, just a thunderstorm, or something else? I'm not sure getting in a car is a good idea.

Thuderstorm. We're close enough to Lake Erie that we don't get too much tornado action.

A potentially, tornado spawning T-Storm?

Be careful out there

Fortunately our proximity to Lake Erie limits them. But it was an...entertaining drive home.

If it's a thunderstorm it's sexy; however tornadoes are scary.

In Texas they have them a lot and since I'm from California (here on grad school) the tornado warning scared me and I ended up looking like an idiot.

The thunderstorms in Texas are crazy though. The thunder rumbles really really loud and the lightening is really neat.

Problem is sometimes it's so loud it makes me scream, which really makes me look stupid.

We had a microburst hit the house once and scare the crap outta me, but actual tornados are rare this close to the lake.

What storm is hitting?

I just moved to Japan this week, and we had a typhoon yesterday. That was exciting!

Sorry, writing quickly before leaving. I made it sound like a particular storm. It was just one that had been threatened all day.

I happened to be downtown for that mess yesterday. Quite the party, what?? :) Not leaving til 6 meant that most of the water had fallen already, and most of the too-fast drivers were already down the road and out of the way. It was a mildly rainy, not particularly windy ride home then. 5:30 was pretty impressive, though -- walls of water blowing sideways as the trees get bent over like photos you see from Florida during hurricane season. The airplanes tossed around at Burke were pretty impressive, too.

Ah well ... here's to a dryer, cooler, quieter day!

My sister (the other one, not Kristi) managed to get in a wreck over in Erie in the midst of all this. It was quite the day.

My company has a Cleveland office. I thought of you guys when their power went out yesterday.

And was jealous of the storm, of course. ;)

It was pretty trippy. The first wave passed quickly, but then it kept up into the night. We never lost power, though.
