The worst I hit was Charlotte Hall about 45 minutes ago, wind howling, rain coming down in buckets..had to pull into WaWa and wait it out.

I got pelted with dirt and tiny rocks while walking across the parking lot to my car at 445ish, blown around too

Often wondered why it's always called a thunderstorm when in fact it is the lightning of the storm that causes the thunder. Shouldn't really be called a lightning storm, or a lighting and thunderstorm? Especially now since we have started to give names to much smaller storms. We must be meteorologically technically correct nowadays, right?

Darndest thing...the line split when it approached St. George's. That happens a lot...no idea why, unless it's simply God intervening because of my lifetime of good clean living.
