The woods were dark at this spot.
We had a hot day yesterday. I measured the temperature on our (shaded) deck at 34ºC (about 93ºF) in mid-afternoon. Then, around midnight, the thunder and lightning started. The storms weren't particularly violent, at least not here, but they went on for two and a half hours. I was awake most of that time -- I find it hard to sleep during thunderstorms. Rain started around 02h45, after the thunder had moved off to the northeast. I finally got to sleep sometime after 03h00.
