Default Now THAT was a strong T-storm cell!!

Lasted 5 minutes, probably rained an inch, and it blew my satelite dish out of whack!!! So there I am (need my t.v. if I'm gonna stay home on a Sat. night!!), standing on a ladder in the rain adjusting my dish, with a stereo speaker by the window so I can hear the tones!! LOL!!!! But I aint skeered of a little lightening!!!

We've had a BUNCH of rain here also. I bet you got what we had last night. And if that's the case you got a lot more coming! It really came off and on here.

Hopefully gonna help fill up these lakes around the area!!!!!

I believe the storm was created in response to the thunder heard in my yard. I finished putting the drive on the boat, and pulled it out to fire it up!! I guess all the thunder created started the storm gods a brewing. I was tickled pink to have my boat ready for water in April!! Of course I do need to get some wax on it..always something to do with a boat!

So Mike, sorry if you dish got blown off course, but I am on course and will be in the water earlier than I can ever remember!!!
