When we heard the thunder at noon we figured there would be a big storm given that it was so hot and humid. So we went out to lunch with umbrellas and raincoats, all unneeded.
This evening we figured it was just going to go by and went out to dinner unprepared. Of course it hit just as we got to the restaurant under the tents. Luckily it worked well until the blowing wind caused a leak in the center of the roof that poured onto our table and that of another couple, also causing some chilly diners still wearing bare arms and shoulders.
I was wondering if anywhere was hit harder? The early storm really cut down on the humidity.
