We had a fast moving storm, and when it rained, it was white outside..My poor son a a morotcylce, took shelter in a gas station. The good thing is, it passed quickly.

HMMM,,,just another lovely day here in Central Florida... 8) Actually, we're into our normal summer pattern, with brief thunderstorms in the afternoon. Nothing like you folks have been getting, but at least some rain. Hang in there,,,it'll turn to snow soon enough.

Yep - hit my area around 7 p.m. last evening and lasted thru early hrs of today - we didn't have damage but I think there was some street flooding, people getting stranded in their vehicles and such. Some areas got up to 4 inches of rain.

Hope it's done for the weekend!
