Post by: NQC on June 23, 2021, 0041 UTC
Hey All.

4 strikes today within 300 to 400 ft.
Very wild.Heavy rain / lightning tapers down to gentle long duration soaking rains .

We really needed the water.
I am thankful for this rain event and so is my garden.

We got an inch total of welcome rain here yesterday and the evening before. Some lightning, enough to unplug the antennas, but nothing nearby fortunately. Now several days of wonderful for late June weather with low humidity and temperatures in the low and mid 70s.

Have been out in Oakland for a month now and the weather has been the same everyday - overcast 50's until 10am, 70's bright sun and breezy until sunset.  Not a drop a rain for a month and maybe none for the next month.  I do not think this is going to end well.  However, it is spectacular to behold.
