I am up and awake already this morning, which is not at all normal for me. So, why am I up and awake? Well, a line of nasty lightning and thunder storms swept across our area. They are all off to the east now, and we all (my wife and I and the pups) seemed to survive it but now I am wide awake. The leading edge of the storms hit us about 03:30 and it is now 05:20 and I can still hear the thunder off to the east. Hey Louisiana, I'm sending them your way.
If you have a computer, there are lots of weather sites that you can visit. Weather Underground (wunderground.com) is a good one for any area and have excellent weather radar maps and forecasts. Just type in your zip code and it will give you your local weather with radar, etc. It is really good at tracking hurricanes, too. Let's hope that last one will not be needed this year.
It is only 05:30 now and I am wide awake. It looks like this is going to be an extra long day, for sure. It will be a beautiful day since the storms swept over us and headed on out east. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
