It started around four this morning and peaked at five. Holy mackerel !! Thunderous claps, sizzling in the electrified air, followed blinding bolts of lightning. The rains went from torrential to a mild shower. Things appear calm now but there won't be school or work today as rivers and streams are swollen, trees are down and getting here from town too challenging. The skies are still overcast so everyone expects more noise and rain later on. As one of our visitors said this morning -- "WOW! Now that was a thunderstorm!"
