  1. Great change of wind directions with swirling leaves everywhere. Not fun when surrounded by giant old trees, but no issues.
  2. Heck of a lightning strike in Burke (towards W. Springfield) a couple of minutes ago. We all jumped in our house. Good stuff. These guys working on a driveway on my court are still outside. I don't get it...
  3. Today's evasive storm maneuvers were a work of art to miss Burke in the way it did...
  4. Watching from my home in Burke now. Still no rain, but winds have really kicked up since the outflow moved through.
  5. Yup, I'm off of Shiplett, maybe a 500 feet north of Old Keene Mill. Wish I had a view of Pohick Creek right now.
  6. My backyard is the border for West Springfield (the big power lines), so eastern Burke I was driving home from Fairfax City this morning hoping to cross Guinea before Long Branch rose... lotta anxiety during that 20 minute drive!
  7. Burke didn't do too bad. Recorded 2.06 from the event in less than hour.
  8. 2.15 from today, in Burke. Backyard nearly had rapids going in the downhill portion. Good stuff.
  9. For those in FFX, there's water running across Guinea between Braeburn and Braddock in two different spots. I was able to drive over it (didn't see it, not a fun surprise). Was worst around the Long Branch stream.
  10. Micro split between two stronger clusters. Our trees are gracious.
  11. 1.62 in the gauge. Lightning show was great, but only one small patch of winds about 30 minutes into it, so we missed out there. No hail.
  12. I've got 3.89 in my gauge since midnight, with .62 yesterday. Not bad! I was driving on Olley earlier this morning, at least 2 inches ago, and water on the road was already a problem at the bottom of the hill heading south towards Braddock. Burke Lake near Shiplett had major ponding as well.
  13. Trying to get my older son's heart to stop racing from that one. We were watching by the front door.
  14. I'll stand in for mattie g -- quality soaker in Burke, but thunder and lightning mostly underwhelming. Great for the grass and shrubs though.
  15. A barely audible trail of thunder heard in Burke around 4:30. Hope you didn't miss it!
