Funny I have been getting flash flood warnings on my phone all day for LE.

Really came down on Orange but not blocks away, it is thundering now and rain almost stopped. It came down fast and furious after a lot of wind.

Big rain drops, thunder, and even caught a few flashes around 3:30 inthe wildomar vortex. Finally. Two blocks in any direction from my house has had rain but we were dry with all the last storms. When we do get hit it is hard. Hope everyone came out ok

I can't believe that it didn't rain at our shop on Grand but Mission Trail and Corydon were flooded, and my house at the north end got high winds and rain, weird.

Well the rain has to stop somewhere, we actually were on our front porch and it was NOT raining and yet 100 feet away we could here the rain on the metal shelter of my horse pen.
