Once again, we got dumped on, this time was about as intense as we’ve ever seen! We got about 0.75 inches of rain today! The ducks were walking and the geese were complaining 😉

Here’s a bit from 5:45 pm, just before the peak. The thunder is continuous! It literally never stops.

Now we’re at peak intensity! Bill was watching the weather station and at the very peak, we were getting 1/100 of an inch every 9 seconds. When you run the numbers, it was raining at a rate of 4” per hour.

The little metallic “tinks” you hear is the hail hitting the metal tops of the two small ground lights you can see.
