Last Night's Storm

Post by stopnswop2 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:36 pm

Did anyone lose power?

Or see a tornado?

Not even a flicker for me. It was nasty outside for five minutes. Marble size hail and 45 mph wind gusts at my house. It did rain incredibly hard.

Figures, I walked out of the gym and it was torrential rain. I was like SHIT! and ran to my car in the back of the parking lot. Got drenched. Pulled out of the parking lot, drove a half mile, and I was out of the storm. Ugh, if I would have just waited probably 10 more minutes I wouldn't have been soaked. My luck, lol.

Power didn't even flicker, but it seemed like the storm was everywhere around us but south. Lots of lightning just to the East... those poor folks had to be getting hammered, but it was a nice light show for me... same thing to the North.

It was quite the light show. We were sandwiched between the tornado warning in Genesee and Shiawasee counties and, miles down US 23, the action in Ann Arbor heading towards Whitmore Lake. Lightning from all directions. But here in Brighton, no power flickers, no damaging winds, just a 15 minute loud storm.

I waited MONTHS for that.

A remarkable storm for Michigan given its longevity and peak strength. The fact it occurred in the first half of March makes it even more remarkable.
