This is what I get for making fun of the CDC in my earlier post. It had been cloudy off and on again today, and just when I decided to jump in the pool around 2:45pm this afternoon, this happened…
Dark clouds, thunder – no lightning yet.
Then the rain started. Stayed in for about 10 minutes and then it started to pour. Still no lightning (otherwise I would have never been in the pool).
After exiting the pool, I had to rescue the Zinnia plants from getting drowned and pull them into the covered patio area.
The rain kept coming down harder and harder along with 50+mph winds. Eventually the lightning came. No, I don’t have pictures of it.
Meanwhile in the front yard, the neighbors across the street were filming their kids running around in the storm. At least he was having fun.
The rain, wind and lightning lasted until about 5:00pm.
