I was up half the night last night with BOOM BOOM BOOM from thunderstorms down here. It started at about 11:30, with thunder that sounded really close to the ground all around me and brilliant lightning flashes. There was a lot of rain, too. I understand that it lasted until 5:00 AM though I fell asleep around 4:00 AM.
I love thunderstorms (that don't cause damage), though I love them more when they aren't keeping me up all night!
I think these were at the trailing end of the line that may have affected newguy's area.
