Now this just appeared on my screen:
...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING...The sky is dark and the winds are increasing. The stands of bamboo nearby are again bent over and almost horizontal with the ground. The pines and others are whipping in the gale-force wind gusts and while scary, it's amazing to watch nature do its thing.
SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS WERE DEVELOPING OVER THE DELMARVA PENINSULA AND SOUTHEASTERN PENNSYLVANIA THIS AFTERNOON. THESE THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE NORTHEAST QUICKLY, AND SOME SHOULD MAINTAIN THEMSELVES AS THEY MOVE INTO SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY. THEY WERE GENERATING DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND HEAVY DOWNPOURS THAT MAY RESULT IN PONDING OF WATER. A FEW MAY GENERATE SMALL HAIL.
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO DRIVE ACROSS ANY FLOODED ROADS. IF YOU ARE OUTDOORS AND HEAR THUNDER, PLEASE MOVE INDOORS.
I hope I don't lose power tonight, but if I do it's far better than dealing with a tornado - which seems to be out of the picture now. Friends down south aren't being so lucky. Things are pretty bad there.
