Lightning, Thunder, Fire, Rain, & Hail..

The email and Twitter alerts are coming fast and furious.  While the County is still under a red-flag warning, the skies opened up and rain is falling throughout.  We had half-inch-diameter hail down at the Fire Station.  Lightning strikes started several fires, three of them in Jamul.  The rain did its part, though, and they are now out.
Rains are coming from the South, with more bands on the horizon as I write this (about 3:10 PM).  Thunder and lightning have struck on all sides, with some spectacular hits over Lyons Peak and
Mother Grundy.
Our firefighters responded to reports of 3-4 small fires started by lightning strikes.  It's currently raining cats and dogs (and birds and mice) with almost constant thunder and lightning. Stay inside and stay safe!
Looking north to Mt. Elena

Weather bands are coming from the south.  More on the way.
Roads are dangerous.  An overturned tanker spilled jet fuel onto 805-North at E Street.  The freeway was closed and expected to open later this afternoon.
