We're about ready for our 3rd charcoal grey sky unleashing,as well. Lasts about 20 minutes but still causes flooding.
Call me freakish but I love watching thunderstorms.
I'm with you on this, Bob.
The apartment my wife got when we were married had a west-facing porch and we'd sit out there and watch for hours...
Last night we had one of those "watch/warnings" I swear is hyped to sell advertising... Disappointing!
