Zeus fought Thor

Horrific thunderstorm here last night. Right around 2:30 there were several strikes that were right on top of us. I have yet to go out and survey the damage, but something had to have been struck by lightning. There was also high wind; I expect at least one of the blackjack trees to have gone down. Don't know why it's always a blackjack. They must not have a good root system or something.

I really need to get a new rain gauge.

  1. We got 1.2 inches in about an hour and a half in the Bandera/Tezel area. It was coming down in buckets. Not too much lightning, though.
