  1. I was in Falls Church near the west falls church metro at the time. Like @nj2va, I remember an unbelievable amount of blue flashes in the sky from both lightning and blowing transformers. It was honestly hard to tell the difference. The sky was an absolutely surreal dark purple/black color. There were trees down across the neighborhood and our house lost power for about 36 hours. It was hotter than heck, so I abandoned ship and went to my parents in PA for the weekend the following morning, as it became clear we weren't getting power back anytime soon. Some folks in my office, particularly those served by PEPCO in the bethesda/chevy chase, silver spring, and takoma park areas were out of power for 5-10 days.
  2. That was me earlier this month. So much for 'mild symptoms' eh? But agreed, would like to see the sun here...
  3. Beautiful morning here in Silver Spring. This weather makes me miss the cicadas :-( Good news for fellow long-range weenies , the EPS (euro ensemble) plots on tropical tidbits have been significantly expanded. https://www.tropicaltidbits.com/analysis/models/?model=eps&region=us&pkg=apcpn&runtime=2022051700&fh=276 Wayyy more options and temporal resolution now. Can't wait to hallucinate upcoming blizzards with more ensemble detail.
  4. A few rumbles of thunder with showers near downtown Silver Spring in the past 10 minutes.
  5. Kids soccer game got cancelled last Saturday. Makeup game tonight. Another game tomorrow AM. It's gonna be soggy out there. If they don't get cancelled! Looking ahead, hoping I can make my family suffer through no AC over the weekend, especially Sunday/Monday. Aiming for an air conditioning season of May 20th - October 20th only!
  6. Gorgeous day, low humidity, clear skies for two straight days. still haven't turned on the central AC this year. Though the furnace got more work than usual so far May. However I will say that I remember memorial Day weekend last year was quite chilly, and we ran the furnace then too. I prefer furnace season to constant central air season for sure, but the shoulder seasons where you don't need to run either are pretty great.
  7. You can see the fog creeping south in this GOES imagery: https://weather.cod.edu/satrad/?parms=local-Virginia-02-24-1-100-1&checked=map&colorbar=undefined
  8. Time to bring this thread back. Lawn is drying out, no rain forecast all week. Drought.
  9. 73 with a healthy breeze out of the SW on Cape Hatteras today.
  10. Wow, what a miserable day out there! Looking forward to some sunshine tomorrow.
  11. I'll give it a C for MBY. Cold and relatively snowy January prevented it from being a D or F. But man, would have been nice to have real snow in February...
  12. Big cell out near Dulles, anyone in it? Not much action here in silver spring so far since a downpour around 2pm
  13. Hope that pattern sticks. Gonna be on Cape Hatteras the 9th - 16th, hoping for 65-75 and sunny!
