A nice line of *heavy* rain going through! Torrential downpours. I was downstairs and thought it was a huge gust of WIND. When it didn't stop, I went up and it was the rain coming down on the ROOF that was making the sound. Wow.

Looks like a powerful bow echo there. Was there any strong wind at all in the storm?

Winds were actually pretty moderate. The density and intensity of the rain though, was something I hadn't seen in a loong time.
