The storm has lost a lot of it's rain, but it still very well defined. Winds today are expected to be between 28 and 34 mph all day.

The sky is getting that sickly yellow/green tint, and the wind is picking up and making the trees dance. Here comes the next band of TS Lee (Yep, it's got a name.)

That sickly colored sky reminds me of tornado weather... not that one always appears, but when they do, it's often a greenish sky.

There were tornado watches yesterday, but not today.

It rained and blew for awhile, calmed down awhile and looks like it's revving up again. It may not be a really strong storm, but it sure is well formed. There's a definite eye.

I've seen much worse rain accumulation here.

I'm enjoying the kaleidescopic skies, but not worried about the storm.

We went from oppressive summer heat to fall today, 67, sunny, and breezy.

ditto here, but no AC.. just two fans. I'm even going to be brave and bake something in the oven for dinner.
