Quite a surprise across a good chunk of Western Oregon this morning. Widespread thunderstorms erupted with a cold front as it’s been moving inland. Anyone driving I-5 from Salem to Grant’s Pass probably had a heck of a light show beginning around 2am or so. I even see one strike (equipment only detects cloud to ground strikes) here in the Metro area this morning, near Lake Oswego/West Linn.
Okay, off to volunteering at my kid’s school this morning. It’s early for 4th grade math, but I’ll try to re-learn something again this week.
Quite a bit of trauma and drama going on in the weather center today…changes ahead! I’ll elaborate more on some shifting schedules in a few days. But this means I ran out of time to add any other thoughts. I’ll post tomorrow.
