We had two thunderstorms yesterday. One in the afternoon which was racing across the area. That one only gave us a little rain and a couple cracks of thunder. I was happy with that for February.

Later on between 10 and 11pm we had a more impressive storm complete with a severe thunderstorm warning. It was pretty cool to be out on the porch watching lightning off to the north and west at 10pm with no jacket in February. If we can’t get any snow I’d rather have this. It got a little breezy then had a good gust of wind or two and burst of heavy rain. It made me look forward to storms in spring.

Also many records feel yesterday for the high temperature. Middletown hit 66 breaking the old record of 60.
