    Take cover.

    It's one of those BIBLICAL rains along with monster lightning and thunder.

    Gotta shut the computer down.

    Stay safe!

    There are no warnings associated with the storm. You're safe to continue playing golf.

    Right outside downtown Orlando...there was either a lightning strike about 100 yards away or somebody's house just exploded. Or maybe both.

    Stay safe, guys. We have those very rarely, and they usually last a few minutes and then go to New Jersey for more fun.

    Speaking of biblical rainstorms, I've always wondered this. When there were only two mosquitoes in the whole world, why didn't Noah kill them both?

    That's exactly what my husband-the-meteorologist would say! I like reading the DIS boards. He likes tracking storms.

    I was in the Magic Kingdom for the 3:00 parade (which was cancelled, btw) and there was some lightening & loud thunder, but not ever a downpour.

    My brother and his family left for St. Petersburg early afternoon. I wonder if they got stuck in it.

    LOL that's about like it. However he has gotten me into looking at the weather too, just not to the extent that he does.

    If that's "thinning the herd", what's it called when people use the shoulder of I-4 as an extra driving lane?

    We had one of those storms last Friday (even though I slept through it)...my DBF said that he was in the garage by the back door watching it....one lightening strike was so big that it lit up the entire neighborhood and he heard it hit something....at the same time the power surge was so much, that it fried my Satellite Receiver....had to call Direct TV and they brought out a new one on Monday.
