I got spanked yesterday on my way home. luckily I missed the worst part, there were high winds branches down and driveway washouts everywhere. it was a slow ride home. no hail though or I would have called for a ride too, the rain hurts bad enough!

Musta been the day for it I had to ride the last 60 to 80 miles home in one of those storms too ,I am learning to interpret weatherman language,Isolated Storms means wherever you are at the time,and A 30% Chance will get you just as wet as 90% ,but I still don't know the difference between partly sunny and mostly cloudy other than you're probably getting wet either way,Denny

Got spanked hard yesterday coming home from work. Luckily I have two rain suites, one in my saddle bags (in the back of my Jeep and the other in the basement). Fortunately I was fully prepared to zig zag thru the lighting bolts.

i made out allright fri. the nasty storm cleared by the time i left work. it was down to a light rain but there was plenty of road debris to dodge. when i got home all the furniture on my deck was blown to one side. i spent a few hours on sat. cleaning up the deck and yard. took the ride in today with a chance of rain because the rest of the week looks like a complete wash out. its an odd june here with all the rain.
