So today, we were hit with a HUGE thunderstorm. It's still going on. This is insane. There was hail the size of golf balls pelting the windows. I was scared. I thought the windows were going to break, and the house would flood. The power even went out for about 10 seconds. Have you guys ever had something like that.
When it happened I was indoors at a shopping centre and the water seeped through the ceilings and we were all running away as the shops started flooding. To think if an electrical object touched the water everyone would've died.
Oh yeah, storms come through here all the time in the summer, and this summer probably will be the same. And some of those storms can get pretty bad; I've lost count of the amount of severe weather warnings that have been issued for my area over time.
But, yeah, like Rico just said, it's Florida, so that's expected.
I've been through one hurricane, Hurricane Katrina. After Katrina hit, my precious mango tree got knocked over and my neighborhood never had those delicious mangos again. Ah Florida, you bring me the best Citrus fruit and beaches, but you are the target for hurricanes of all shapes and sizes.
Okay, we (central Ohio) were supposed to get 3 waves of big storms in the past week, but none of them have been that interesting. What I really love is when there is non-stop thunder and the sky is flashing like crazy. :D
I mean, yeah, we just had a thunderstorm, but it rained barely for about 10 minutes. >_> Why can't it storm really hard anymore?
Yeah, here in Oregon we get our fair share of rough weather. For example, about a year ago, we had a giant snowstorm that covered the ground with at least 1 foot and a half of snow, it knocked over STOP signs, buried cars. It was hectic... the day after we went sledding...
But we rarely get thunderstorms.
Edit: Of course, there was that one that knocked over trees, crushed cars, and killed two people.
Living in Washington I don't get much of a chance to say this, but it was a gloriously sunny day today. I'm sure the rain will be coming back within the week though, we can never go too long without rain...
