WOW! What a storm that was!

Yesterday's storm devistated our area. After the wind and HAIL pasted thru, it left carniage in its wake. Trees, wires, and poles down all over our town and surrounding towns. Amazingly, during the hail storm, we had a rainbow in our yard. The ENTIRE rainbow was in our yard :shock: It was only 150ft from end-to-end, and the arch did not go over tree height, I estimate 70 ft. We snapped a picture of it, and the kids will start digging where the ends go into the ground :D . I've never seen such a tiny rainbow.
Power was out for 20 or 21 hours. Amazingly, phone was back after only 6 hours.
What a Storm!

Nothing notable happened here, some a brief rainstorm in the afternoon and some thunder and showers in the evening. What time did this happen?

We lucked out too, that band of storms was centered more south of our location. Family south of here got the same treatment Chris did. We got some rain but nothing destructive. Took a drive north and saw a few trees and branches down, but nothing severe. The Doppler radar looked pretty intense.

Good link Dave, thanks.
And funnel clouds were reported in Frenchtown and Pittstown in Hunterdon County, according to the National Weather Service. If any touched the ground, the agency could classify them as tornadoes, meteorologist Greg Heavener of the Mount Holly office said.


My brother lives 2 miles from me, and says Downtown Pittstown is still unaccessable. The "funnel clouds" were mini-toradoes that pulled the canopys off of several hundred-year-old trees. My brother can look thru his woods and see a path where it looks like a bulldozer pushed over trees to create a new road. Straight as an arrow.

I did not realize the storm reached that far. I got home about 8:00 or so and just beat it. Lots of rain and thunder and lightning. We lost power for a few hours. Good to know that my Warm Morning does not need electricity to run! :-)

There were Two Tornadoes that touched down reasonably close to me. At my house the sun was shining and 20 mins to the west there was 83 mph winds and a touch down. Some cazy stuff.
