  1. this is composite and not great for zooming in on small scale events, but it's another option. i use it mostly for past winter storms or anything large scale: https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/current/mcview.phtml?prod=usrad&java=script&mode=archive&frames=60&interval=60&year=2014&month=2&day=12&hour=0&minute=0

    i am, however, interested in tropical season this year.

    i'll never forget how beautiful it was the day before the impending hecs. played ball in shorts and a tshirt lol. march snowstorms are kinda lame anyway unless we're talking '14, so that wasn't much of a stinger. edit: well, and '93 was fun, but that's like uncommon and stuff. that said, i'm not ready for that snow noise. i'm still enjoying what's been a pretty solid thunderstorm season, at least imby.

    round two moving through shortly. dc looks prime for that.

    healthy deluge, but nothing like yesterday's hurricane-like downpours. i don't recall seeing it rain that much in a 45 minute period before. the 270 split has done pretty well with storms this year.

    Impressive wind driven storm just pulsed right overhead. Probably close to localized severe.

    been expanding my bourbon game lately. latest recommendations are mckenna 10 and michter's small batch. those are probably in my new top 3 along with blanton's. so are we gonna get a thunderstorm soon or what?

    very run of the mill dc summer compared to last. also finding that we get these periodic busted forecasts for storms. have barely seen any rain the last few days. not complaining too much, though, as it's helped keep the trails clean.

    I'm in a spot with huge panoramic windows looking north and west, and this might be the most amazing storm I've ever seen. Certainly up there with the derecho. agreed, no doubt up there on a localized level. i'm pissed...i missed the first microburst because i didn't hit play lol. got some vid of the 2nd one though and of course hit play right after a legit cg strike across the way. this might actually be the best storm i've experienced since the derecho. it's amazing how these are so imby. i'm texing with my friend in ellicott who said it's calm there.
  10. this storm belongs in the severe thread. healthy wind, lightning, rain...total package. hopefully others can cash in.

    got a microburst here and could hear trees falling in the distance. absolutely legitmate and possibly severe by the 270 split near cabin john with cg lighting and all.
  14. pretty healthy summer storm moving through here. not a lot of wind (not our strength), but quality torrents and lightning.
  15. hrrr looks healthy towards the end of the evening rush
