Did someone post this site before?    http://en.blitzortung.org/live_dynamic_maps2.php?map=30      Scroll west to North America, then use the +/- to zoom in. About a 7se - 20sec delay on this map seeing what you have LIVE. Tis the season.... Too damn soon.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.

And my best ol' pal is stuck dead in the middle of it. ;)

When I was a kid it was an easy way to spot Yankees. In the summer, thunderstorms in the middle of the night scared the Bejesus out of them. It hasn't got hot enough for heat lightning yet, so it had to be a final test. In the days of horse and mule riding Methodist preacher's, straight out of the west of England, they swore they'd been mounted by Satan himself when they got to a town. When the winds started to blow hard ,possums, raccoons, and bobcats would drop and attach themselves to anything below them that looked solid and sturdy. It was always a manifestion of Satan or Baptists to those Methodists.
