    A lot of rumbling and grumbling, distant flashes, but not a lot of real fury, and I'm OK with that.

    FYI, the last time I saw a green sky we received hail between baseball and softball size. They came through my roof and broke every window in my house. Not to mention the ten grand damage to my wife's car. Keep an eye on that weather. Green is not good.

    I was about 7 or 8 the first time I saw green skies, and the storms were ferocious. It wasn't something I was taught, but more something I learned from observation. I'm in the clear now, but there is video from Connecticut, which is a mile or so south of me, with some massive and torrential hail. The front is mostly out to the Atlantic now. \o/

    And a point of pride, my son just asked me why it is yellowish green outside, so he's at least aware of his surroundings. :)

    Dodged the rain and thunderstorms that hit the NYC area about a half hour ago. At least the PATH train is running... not so good ATM for anyone going into Long Island via Metro North.

    A neighbor's tree came down but luckily it fell between the houses and is just a mess to clean up. No damage or injury. The lightning show was rather spectacular.

    Tuesday we had storms, yesterday it was rain, but today it's rain. To change things up, Friday and Saturday will have periods of rain.

    We could use some of that rain her in the KC metro. We've had spits and sprinkles with maybe one or two downpours that lasted less than 10 minutes, we're drying out on the vine.

    Otherwise weather has been fine, as is usual we went from 12 degrees in April with snow ... the most snow we got all winter, to May being in the 80's. Sigh. I think we got 2 or 3 days of "Spring" this year.

    @shalemail it's raining in Wichita now and headed your way. Hope you get some rain out of it.

    I did mow the lawn yesterday because of the weekend forecast. It's raining now and supposed to continue into tomorrow with possible storms tomorrow evening.

    I hate cutting wet grass.

    Wet grass never looks good post mowing, clogs up the mower deck, and is more trouble than worth IMO. I refuse to cut wet grass until I see myself getting so far behind that I have no other option.

    It rained here over night. Only .54 inch here at the ranch but it was much needed.
