    Spring and Summer 2018

    Weekend hiking in Shenandoah. We got caught in a heavy thunderstorm out on the trail but the low clouds in late afternoon were such a wonderful treat! Last pic was a 6am hike to the summit of the highest point in the park. About as good as it gets on the east coast.

    We were also stuck in that here in delco. Rained all day into the evening. Pretty gross weekend, at least there was a little bit of Saturday that was salvageable.

    Next June? Long as you're okay with hibernation.

    Gusting to about 40 and torrential rain. Nice summer soaker, not looking forward to the steam on the other side though. Rumbles but nothing close yet.

  6. Since it's now late August and we have yet to get a decent storm here in delco, I drove up to quakertown to see these. Lots of precip so no good lightning pictures, but plenty of close strikes.

    Was there ever any detail on Adam's post?

    Noob questions....Severe warning is issued on winds over 50kts (58mph-ish) or hail an inch or higher, quarter size or so as far as I know. Is that correct? Just looking at radar signatures, the svr warned storms today didn't appear even close to that, radar indicated winds were strong but not 60mph even in dense locality. No hail, clouds were like 35k tops. Perhaps a ground obs caught a gust?

    SVR out near rising sun. Looks like wind? A tiny super res square of 48mph wind but otherwise pretty unimpressive?

    Never seen this much water coming into my basement, luckily the sump pump is pretty much keeping up, but what a mess.

    Sea breeze push, so cool to see it pushing back and immediately trigger the rain behind it. We had a couple mild gusts (10-15mph) then about 8-10 minutes later the rain came.

    here in delco, today turned out really nice. Few clouds, humidity is...acceptable...and no rain! I'll take it.

    just passed by crum creek here in delco... it's about as swollen as I've ever seen it. Yards flooded but not over the road/bridge...yet.
