Edge of the storms just hitting the Sellersville/Perkasie area. Heard the thunder at least 40 minutes before the rain the started. Only had about .1 inches of rain last night. I'll try and post again an hour with updates.

Wish I could have video taped the rain I drove through yesterday here in VA. Don't think I've ever seen anything like it. I was driving on a 4 lane highway (similar to 422/202 without all the northern drivers) when my sister and I noticed that up ahead off us it almost looked like fog...only it wasn't fog...it was a WALL of water. And as we got closer it was like the Matrix slow motion scenes. I felt like I could reach out and pluck the rain drops right out of the air. In all my geekiness and admiring how cool it looked my sister had to turn my windshield wipers on full speed and I still couldn't see!
