I had to run out in the patio in my PJ's at 3 am to retract our patio umbrellas. We had sudden ferocious winds and rain overnight. Good soaking all around.... I loved it.

Yikes! With that wind last night, your umbrellas may have ended up in the next county!

I thought about you last night with all those umbrellas. Good golly man, didn't you watch the weather report about the coming storm? Three am sounds about right as our wind/rain pounding was about midnight.

I knew the storm was heading.....I was tracking the radar images most of the night.
I just completely forgot about the umbrellas after coming home from work at 8pm.

I bet that huge one over your cooking station was a bear to get down!

At least it wasn't a cold winter storm. Temps were rather mild, actually.

Yep, it's just so nice to have some weather to talk about. I remember when a new local tv weather man came from the east coast and he was complaining there was nothing to talk about day after day after day. "Sunny, mild and beautiful".

Well, here comes part 2 - it's pouring again, this time with thunder and lightning.

Sort of sounds like Hawaii. They tack the weather on the very end of sports. Gives it maybe two sentences. Same as today. More sunshine.

Now I recall. What woke me up prior to the storm reaching us at 3am was my wife's new iphone. It lit up with a loud severe weather alert message. That was around 2:30 am. Half an hour later we were getting pounded. Rock!
