Odds and Ends
Yes, I did get a storm last evening, so the signs I saw in the early morning were true enough. The storm at the cabin was not as severe or as strong as I expected. Thunder boomed all around me, the wind picked up, and I did get some rain. However, when I looked at the radar, I saw I was in a tiny circle of only light bad weather, while the storms were severe just a very few miles to the north and south. In a way, I was lucky, though the mountain could sure have used more rain.
I took this photo last evening before the storm and the rain came through, just as the wind was rising. It was taken looking up my lane.
I've been organizing my 2007 cabin birding lists, which you can find here and here if I've set things up properly, by no means a certain thing. I will likely keep my cabin lists online for a while, at least until I get bored with doing it.
The morning the remanants of the storm are still hanging around, but it is already breezy and cooler, with the sky only just beginning to clear. With the weekend weather looking good, I'm hoping to spend some time deeper in the woods, on a few of the trails I don't get to walk regularly, just to see what's going on. Stay tuned.
