Stormy morning

Thunderstorms

Thunderstorms

This morning we awoke to thunderstorms!  Then Froggy and I had to drive through them to school and work.  When we left home it was only sprinkling.  As we drove through Center City it was raining HARD and there was lightning everywhere.  The tops of most of the skyscrapers were shrouded in the clouds.  We passed through the storm heading east, and by the time we got to Froggy’s school it was only sprinkling – we had beat the storm.

When I got out of the school and back in the car the storm hit!  The same storm I had already driven through!  Lightning was everywhere and it was pouring buckets of rain.  It was crazy!  And fun at the same time.  I got this radar picture about 20 minutes after the storm had passed.  This was an impressive set of storms this morning!

SkepToad : My husband, a 6th year astrophysics PhD student. He's involved in some really cool research and he also likes teaching and outreach.

Froggy : My preschool age daughter. She loves to dance and sing and color and go to the Children's Museum, and she has a great sense of humor.

Ringo : Froggy's lovey, a stuffed frog that's been with us since she was born. Yeah, his name is Ringo.
