    Ohio here. We get it after Indiana! We've had rain for 4 days straight, and lots of storms and lightening. A church not far from here has a statue of Jesus that is 6 stories high, with his hands raised. Lightening struck it and it caught fire! Totally distroyed it. Its been on the news and in the papers.
    The humidity is so high...really hard on the elderly, and people with breathing problems. This old lady is staying indoors!

    I live in central California, so weather is very predictable here. Hot, hot and more hot until October probably. Don't get rain in the summer, I didn't even know that was possible, until a few years ago, when I traveled back east!! Had our first 100 degrees yesterday, yuk!

    Here in Lexington it was hot and sunny all day, but got stormy looking about 5:30. Heard thunder , but it rolled past us, and now sunny again. We are to have storms this evening and tomorrow. Whatever IL. and ID. have, we usually get about 24 hours later. Sure hope you don"t get a tornado Craftybear!! Those are bad news!! Carol

    Spent the first night in my new house, June 11th, with tornadoes all around me! That's what I get for moving to tornado alley although Iowa gets it's share of the darn things! Arrived back home to my Iowa home and found water in my basement and rain gauge said 5 inches of rain in the 3 days I was gone. At least it was clean water. 2 days of sunshine ahead! Yippee!

    It passed through Colorado the last few days and now we are getting sunny weather. Wish I could send you some of it right now. It sure feels good after four days of icky weather.

    We live in Kingsport, TN and have had a lot of rain and storms lately. We spent this past weekend camping at Hungry Mother State Park. We had several storms while we were there. One storm was quite severe and scared our little granddaughter to tears. We, and all the campers, were very lucky and no damage was done to anything.

    A severe storm passed through our area today with lots of heavy rain and lightning. Some areas next to us were without electric for a while.

    The storm has come and gone, just got more rain and some wind. The big storm went to the south of us.

    I don't like storms. Also my dog is scared of them!
