|A sharp light was flashing through our bedroom and it woke me up. Took me only a second to realize that we had a thunder storm coming, though at the time no thunder could be heard. It might have been miles off our location, so I turned around to find more sleep. But then Bea got up starting to wander around the room. Listening, I heard the rain on the roof. She was closing all windows. 10 minutes later I heard distant thunder rolls. Hmm….thinking of Molly downstairs I got up, made some coffee and waited for more thunder. Molly was still calmly on her bed when I got downstairs so maybe no problem and there wasn’t much thunder either.|
The map shows the thunderstorm almost skirting our area. When I clicked the “weather-in-motion” function it showed the entire storm moving straight north over the mainland, which is the prevailing pattern in our local weather.
Rain lasted not more than 30 minutes and will have very little impact on the dry conditions we have been dealing with.
So over all, it wasn’t much of a storm and Molly didn’t even notice anything. Probably she has just been wondering why on earth Dad came down so darn early. I can still hear faint thunder rolls out west, but the whole disturbance is over for now.
