Good morning.

We had a massive thunderstorm here last night. A line of them passed by us, to the north, in the early evening. But then around 11pm one hit us straight-on.

Lots of bright lightning flashes, booms of thunder, and VERY heavy rain.

I was curled up in my tent listening to reports of the storm on my scanner. I had prepared the back of my car just in case I needed to take shelter in something a little more substantial than the tent. But I didn't need it.

One reason the tent was OK was that the wind never really got going. The rain was heavy, but little wind.

By morning the floor of the tent was wet, with a couple of puddles. I think I have a leak in one of the floor seams, and in general the tent walls could use a waterproofing. But I had everything up off the floor, so other than a corner of a blanket that got wet, no problem.

Check back later for more pictures.

I'm all happy just because there was a light drizzle last night (thursday) and you get T&L.
