West of Mabel Lake

West of Mabel Lake

Appears to be a number of lightening strikes coming to life west of Mabel Lake. 5 new dots on the map.

Is this the lightning map you use? I like it!

I flip between that one and this one:

Seems both of them are hit and miss, if only Vaisala would unleash the realtime.

That bliz one gets on my nerves. I like to be able to zoom into a certain area and I haven't figure out how to with that one.

Seriously? Lightning strikes? There's barely a cloud in the sky ...clearish air for first time in ages.

I will stick my neck out here to predict that feeding horses, chickens, lamas, goats, and cattle is going to be a pricey issue this winter.

Expect meat and dairy to follow upwards.
