Severe TS watch extends east to Franklin County but not beyond.  I think the 50s mank will cut the legs out from anything serious before it reaches my area.

Small hail but prolific lightning.  Some very close strikes with instantaneous crack booms.

Frequent or just close strikes? Sometimes you get a period in the storm's life where it spits out a bunch of CGs locally.

Both it seemed or at least that's what it seemed like.  Not like your humid July evening strobe light but it seemed impressive.  Of course from the mountain we have a better vantage point than a lot of spots.  

Interesting I saw almost no wind at the mountain but driving home there's certainly scattered wind damage in town.  

Saw 10-15 trees down along about a mile stretch of road near home and walking the dog I just noticed scattered damage along our wood line.

Weaker trees on the whole probably but this type of stuff was scattered along RT 108 near my house.  3-4 trees down in this out the car window shot.

The woodline around our yard had some damage that looked like the first round of trees inside the forest took the brunt of the wind.

And then a ton of this sized stuff down, large branches.

Ground is saturated and most of the trees looked to be shallow unrooted stuff. Probably sub-severe wind speeds but the warning could probably be justified.

Good stuff. Legit storm there.

Hoping for no heavy downpours here. Hydroseed does not need to be washed away

Starting to fizzle to my Northwest. I'm back in clouds already, after a 1 hr sunny respite. The inflow into these storms from the east is going to really suck the life out of them as they traverse the area.

Those lines further southwest look like they're hanging tough so far...

Gawdamn, that was 10 minutes of fun. Frequent cloud to ground, gusty winds and pea size hail with torrential rain.  

This pic was just before it hit.

Litchfield cty (western parts) yikes!

The radar looks pretty awesome right now, with shades of dark red and purple that I don't often see, and a plotted track heading right in my direction.
