We had some pretty serious storms come through. A tornado watch was out for a while but no tornadoes in our area touched down. We did have thunder, sheets of rain, and numerous lightning strikes. I can't say I'm a fan of waiting for the funnel to appear. At least a hurricane you can see coming for a few days. The storms are all over now. Phew.
Here are close up shots of my deck after the rain. Below, closeup of a tiny windchime hanging from the rail. I had seen some pics of raindrop close ups and was trying to duplicate before the sun went down. I did not make it. but do check out the stunning raindrops at Harold's blog
