The thunderstorm lasted a couple of hours, but was much diminished after the first half hour. There has been occasional thunder grumbling in the mountains since, but nothing nearby. The rain was intense for a while, but tapered off and was over by morning. This afternoon there was a brief sun shower at the same time the damp roof began steaming from the sudden warmth of the emerging sun. The excitement is probably over now, and the cool weather with it. It's going to get hot tomorrow and hotter still over the weekend. All of next week is apt to be hot, too, with respite only at night. Summer is upon us.
So far I've heard nothing of any fires being started by the storm, but it sometimes takes a day or two for them to get going. I'll keep compulsively sniffing the air until I know for sure.
