The weather has been off and on stormy today, and evidently last night too, with parts of the area experiencing driving downpours of rain about 10:30 p.m. It was dry here, no rain overnight, but my friend Ann's place, which is about 3 miles away, got drenched overnight.
Thunder woke me up about 4:30 a.m. but no rain fell until much later. I think it was around 8 a.m. - I was sitting here at the computer looking out the large front window when it started. It's been raining off and on since, although by the time I got home from an outing with Ann around 2:15 it had stopped raining and the sun was out! It's still out, although there are large areas of dark clouds looming in the sky.
Just checked the local news online and saw this photograph and a report that three water spouts were spotted on Lake Michigan! Very unusual, and we had no severe weather over land, no tornado warnings or wind events.
