Just barely got in bed and was in the spell of sleep when all of a sudden, BOOM! It was lightning that I saw flash before my eyes and then the loudest thunder I have ever heard.
A couple more strikes and more thunder, then the rain fell like Niagara Falls by my window.
Marilyn said all three animals were close to her in bed. This morning she said the storm was about one half a mile from here. It was one and one half inches of rain by morning.
