    They say up to 3/4 inch of hail, and 60 MPH winds. I have taken all the plants out of my GH thingy which is really a nice kite, and have brought the Sarracenia inside. Running around like a rooster with my head cut off, but the bogs are empty, and all is is secured. Watch it miss us now, and I am desperate for water so let it come!

    Dustin, I think it will miss you, its South of us.

    On the other hand I just checked the map. Egads. Better batten down the hatches, its everywhere from Buffalo to Saranac Lake, and its mean looking.

    Distant thunder sounds and the first drops are falling. Hope I don't lose power. Well, at least it isn't frozen for once.

    That's the same storm that hit here today about 4:30. I'm sure it got bigger and meaner with afternoon heating. It was a mean storm but it's fast moving. Lasted about 15 mins.

    We just had a storm roll through about 9-10pm..
    nothing major though, just a normal summer thunderstorm..

    looks like its right on top of Oswego right now.
    (its 11:40pm)
    Tamlin, it was no big deal out here! rolled through in less than an hour, then it was gone..
    no different than any other summer thunderstorm..
    actually, the thunder and lightning was a rather weak showing!

    I think meteorologists don't get enough attention. So they make up all these dire sounding notices - warning, alert, watch, etc. It seems to be pretty much through here now & hardly any wind at all. It's headed up Dustin's way but he's asleep by now.
    As a matter of fact, that's where I'm headed, too. Goodnight!

    Looks like we were on the Southern fringe of it..
    the "main body" of the storm was up over the lake..
    looks like Watertown will get the brunt of it..
    but still, its really nothing big!
    yeah, sometimes the news stations go a bit overboard with their predictions!
    who was making a big deal out of it?
    Syracuse TV stations?
    I didnt even know it was coming..it just started raining, got a little wind and some lightning..I didnt even go outside to look!
    Storms like that roll through here about every 3rd day this time of year..
    I suppose it could have been much worse if it tracked just a little further south..it ended up being mostly over the lake..
    it will be interesting to check and see how hard Watertown got hit!
    see if the meterologists were at least somewhat on the ball!
