It seemed like the summer rainy season would NEVER get started. That is all a memory now. The big storms have started. Yesterday we had rain for hours, big lighting strike numbers, and a few severe thunderstorm warnings. Today we are already back at it.

It’s 5;25 as I’m writing this. The heaviest showers are in Volusia county. No warning, but these storms are full of rain, hail stones, and winds up to 55 mph. I’ll check back in as the evening goes on.
