Just realized today is the 11th anniversary of the Joplin EF5. I think that was a Sunday too.

Yeap. Dates and days of 2022 match 2011.


Watching the line along the Blue Ridge right now.

Nice spring thundershowers!  Perfect amount of watering for gardens.
It literally filled in over us, seems stronger just east of here.

The lightning detectors are showing the most impressive amount of activity this year.
Wish this was at night, when the boomers are east we have very good view of the light show.
