About 6 pm I heard the distant rumble of thunder then checked the weather radar. Figuring I had maybe 20-30 minutes before the storm hit, I headed up the hill behind my house to hopefully capture lightning. Well my attempt proved a nano second off on some impressive bolts. But as I scanned the sky I saw a distant rotation of clouds forming a funnel. Soon after I took my last shot the winds picked up and quarter size raindrops fell from the sky. I scrambled to put my camera back in the bag as I ran through the woods down the hill. Small tree branches were breaking off and falling around me! I made it home just in time to close the windows.
Storm builds at 6:07 pm
At 6:18 the funnel takes shape
At 6:19 the funnel begins to drop.
About 30 or so seconds later it's really taking shape. That's when the rain started and the winds picked up sending me home in a hurry!
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
