Al Gore would be proud!

So a storm moved through today.... it was 88 or so and then dropped about 22 degrees in about an hour as well as a 1/2'' of rain in about a half hour.

Not to mention all the lightning strikes and the fricking tornado warning (wth???)... I guess there were quite a few.....

This pic was taken just a mile or less from my house, funnel cloud:


kgw.com | News for Portland Oregon and SW Washington

Storm coming:





Massive gusts of wind I guess up to 50-60 mph:





Sheets of rain:







Oh the cool air felt so good I had all the windows open but had to sop up the water after and gutters couldn't keep up and puleeease, this the land of rain so we have big gutters:



And the radar when the news channels said it was done and I'm still in the middle.

And the thunder and lightning didn't stop till a little while ago. The pooopooos are finally resting. OH and the rain overflowing the gutters is under the patio cover.

Front yard was almost flooding at one point.

Gosh when it blew in it got crazy. I was at Schawbs with the Vette gettin a quote on new tires and you could literally watch the storm come in. Barely had enough time to get in the car and hall butt home to put er away in time.

Gore would be like "This is DIRECTLY CAUSED FROM GLOBAL WARMING, I'm super CERIAL!"

Oh yah I'm fine, c'mon we have hurricane force winds in the Winter but they don't call it that. The doggies were just freaked from the thunder, it was constant... you couldn't even count between lightning and roar... since it was happening all over the place.
