… with this picture:
It’s 1212am now, and the breeze just turned into a wind. Lightning in the distance. Ominous sounds.
… And now it’s 1231 and nothing has happened. The story at Weather Underground is very different:
I like the little arrows, which are much more revealing than the moving-blob motion of the Weather.com map. It also contradicts the warning, with motion to the east-northeast rather than the east.
Anyway, it’s still hot as hell here. Even late at night. Relief was in sight, then… gone.
