  1. Fly by? It's only the beginning, July & Aug are hotter than June, and Sept isn't far behind. Winter doesn't fly by once we reach the solstice, it only gets colder and snowier from there on out.
  2. Nasty accident involving two trucks on the LIE. Always a crash in the rain.
  3. Heavy rain here SE of JFK. Small cell overhead.
  4. Finished with 1.80". 7th thunderstorm day of the year.
  5. The velocity wasn't terribly high, if something actually touched down I think it would've been an EF0 at best. Still, I hope nothing touched down, at least not in a populated area.
  6. Close lightning strike here in Lake Grove, I saw the flash, the thunder sounded like a canon ball being launched, I felt the energy from it. Absolutely pouring (again).

  8. Tornado Warning for Monmouth, Mercer, & Middlesex counties. Rotation is very clear on radar. Just one of those mornings.
  9. I finished with 1.85" yesterday. I love not having to water anything for awhile. You know it's dry when Rosemary (a Mediterranean native) begins to wilt when the sun hits it. And the first flower on my hibiscus opened up during the second downpour, it's disfigured as a result.
  10. I'm grateful that the temp difference between the coast and inland isn't nearly as great here. Long Island and the Jersey Shore would suck.
  11. I'm glad you get to experience what I did.
  12. I like Sayville, it's a nice little area. It's a little too close to the water for me, I'd be afraid of the flooding, and I can only imagine how strong those winds must've been during storms (especially Sandy) and flooding. The present climate regime on seems to be more snow and less thunderstorms on Long Island. After 2012 it all went downhill in terms of thunderstorms, some years I could the number of thunderstorms on a single hand, and they were generally lackluster.
  13. I'm at 1.40" so far. It's lightened up considerably, no longer pouring.
  14. Getting dark again. Let the games begin. This is the best storm I've experienced since I've been on the south shore (almost a year now).
