    On and off cumulus fractus in the early day replaced by nimbos in the afternoon: interesting lighting conditions in between. I like this time of the year, except lately these past days there was a torrential downpour. Lots of flooding here in New Jersey.

    Does central Florida have a better climate than parts of California or are they about the same? Which is the nicer place to live?

    Had a Tornado warning in our county - it's now a few counties to the East of us. Then again, what is a "warning" now is what was a "watch" when I was a kid. I love thunder storms.

    It's pouring pretty hard, off and on, and our street is now a small river. We're trapped! lol. I had to pull the garbage cans back into the garage so they don't float away, then change into dry cloths. They were at the curb, but the tree-lawn is now ankle-deep in water. I did see a couple plastic garbage bins float down the street and try to turn down a side road before getting stuck where the currents are meeting. A neighbor across the street rescued them & put them in my yard so they are not in the middle of the street.

    Pickups and SUV's keep blasting down the road. No one has stalled yet, but the water is to the floor-pan of a real van (not mini-van). There is a storm-sewer grating right in front of our apron, and water is coming out of it. I walked down the street (in the lawns) and water in the street is two-feet deep in some areas.
    Great photo opportunities, but it's dark, and I'm not taking a camera out in this. I tried with my cell phone, but it focused on the falling rain .

    The back yard is starting to flood now, lol. The subdivision I live in was built circa 1970. We've had far worse storms over the years, but only had the flooding problems in the past 5 or 10, when the city decided to stop maintaining the sewers and started allowing cluster homes on an infrastructure meant for regular-sized homes and lots.

    We have an empty crawl-space, no basement, so we are not worried, and we were kind of laughing at it. However, I feel bad for people about 500-feet each way down the street, as the flooding is worse, and their ground floors are at yard level - plus a lot have finished basements.
    I am sure there will be a lot of damage from this. Tomorrow is trash collection, and there will be a lot of couches set out. Sad what has become of our city. I'm going to call work tonite to let them know if I'm not in tomorrow, it's because the water hasn’t receded.

    At least I don't live in Parma (Ohio). I've seen water flow uphill there.

    We had some nasty storms Sunday into Monday. The worst stuff (including some tornados) just missed us. I don't mind thunderstorms, but I do NOT like high winds with them or swirling wind. I'll take a Nor'easter over a tornado or high straight line wind any day.

    I've not lived in California, but even if the temperatures were similar, the humidity here is godawful in the summer. And, California has to be thought of in two if not three zones, doesn't it? SoCal is much warmer than NoCal as far as I can tell.
