    We just had a wicked storm move through. Very high winds and heavy rain with some thunder. Looks like more on the way.

    This week is supposed to be a roller coaster. Warm then cool then warm then cool. Rain on most days and more wind.

    I saw on the weather map looks like you got a lot more rain to come.

    Looks like most of the storms are staying way north of me except for a few shower just lot of wind.

    We have some big white pines around the house, looks like the storm will be out of the west so we should be okay.
