Yeah I saw that warning which prompted me to come here and see if there was more info - I live in Hamilton, and we got royally pounded by a whopper storm tonight. My eyes are open and tracking the Woodstock/Embro cell to see if it poses a risk. So far it looks like the edge of it might just graze Hamilton, heading more for Brantford/Caledonia.

I'm in Stoney Creek/Hamilton and we certainly got a good show here around 5pm to 9pm-ish. The best thunder and lightning I've seen and heard this year! We had LOTS of loud cracks and constant flashing lightning! I must say, I was pretty impressed tonight! It's pretty much gone now... just some light rain at the moment It did last quite a while though so I guess I shouldn't complain... We might get a little something tomorrow, but I don't see it getting as good as it was tonight. It's been a crappy season for storms around here this year. The last couple of years too I'd say. We haven't had much in the way of tornadoes either. Not like I'd want a tornado to run over my house, but I would like to watch one in an open field where there's no one around! lol. I've kind of been obsessed with storms since I was a little girl. I would fall asleep in front of the sliding glass doors watching storms all the time, lol. Anyway, fingers crossed for tomorrow!

I was not in the city, but my parents say it was sunny as heck there while Niagara Falls, NY (where I was) was slammed. The clouds starting rolling in when we were at Target, it started to thunder while we were in there and as we left, it was spitting. Many crawlers to our right, sun to our left. We got to Walmart, it was still building, not that dark yet but the rain was harder. We had to run and were soaked by the time we got there. It was loud thunder and intense sounding rain while we were inside. When we came out, it was so hard we couldn't see the cars in the parking lot. We made a run for it after much debate and we might of just as well jumped into a river. We were that soaked. We could not move the car, the rain was so hard, we couldn't see anything for a good 20 minutes. Thunder was still loud, it was dark but the lightning wasn't as awesome, just flashes.

When we could see, we moved along, but one other thing I must say...the US needs to figure out proper draining tech's. Streets were flooded, parking lots were fraggin' lakes. I mean LAKES. On top of that we went to Valu (the one near Sams) and the building was so old that it was raining inside the awning, down the windows, down the door seams and even inside the store!
