It’s gonna heat back up but what a beautiful day today. Woke up this morning with the window open, under a blanket but cool breeze on my face.... just the best.

Got all my trees planted, brush cleared. Mostly on account of the rare non-wet non-oppressive weather.

The Inland Empire (sort of out where BigMcK lives) has had 14 consecutive days of triple-digit temps.

There have been over 12,000 lightning strikes in CA since August 15, sparking nearly 600 wildfires burning 3/4 of a million acres prompting over 120,000 evacuations. The weather system that was generating those patterns was birthing thunderstorms that dropped no measurable precipitation in the areas where the fires were burning, but on 2 different days last week it rained where I live - I have no memory of it ever raining in the Valley in August.

Hurricane Laura looks like it could be a real disaster especially from Port Arthur north. Not good.

We have a plant north of Orange which is right in the track. It has flooded for much less.

Yeah, the storm surge between Galveston and New Orleans is going to be realllllllllllly bad. Low-laying areas are going to be destroyed.

It never ceases to amaze me how far away you can see lightning. I'm sitting on my deck watching lightning from severe storms about 70 miles to my south in Lower Delaware.

I remember as a kid I thought heat lightning was just that... Lightning not generated by storms, but from the hot night. Didn't realize until I was older that it's just lightning from far distant storms.

:lol:

I can't tell sarcasm half the time but yeah, it's true.

https://www.weather.gov/safety/lightning-heat
The term heat lightning is commonly used to describe lightning from a distant thunderstorm just too far away to see the actual cloud-to-ground flash or to hear the accompanying thunder.

While many people incorrectly think that heat lightning is a specific type of lightning, it is simply the light produced by a distant thunderstorm.

Often, mountains, hills, trees or just the curvature of the earth prevent the observer from seeing the actual lightning flash. Instead, the faint flash seen by the observer is light being reflected off higher-level clouds. Also, the sound of thunder can only be heard for about 10 miles from a flash.

I always thought it was upper level cloud to cloud electrical activity.
