For the last 20 minutes we have had thunder and lightning here. According to the time between the lightning and thunder it was about 1 mile away. My radios and PC will remain disconnected. Looking at the map linked below it seems to be tracking NW the worst may now have passed. It remains very dark outside and we can still hear thunder.
UPDATE 1830z: Although the storm risk seems to have passed today, more storms are possible tomorrow, so I may leave things disconnected.
