South East Kelowna ...

A very few drops of widely spread raindrops are presently hitting the driveway. The very dark cloud with the accompanying thunder and lightening have moved counter clockwise to the east and east north east of here. I would say that someone out that way sure got a dump of rain (or possibly hail).

I could be wrong but I don't think you would have wanted that one Truth ... unless you wanted riverfront property.

Wind is gone now from Kaleden, funny thing, it ramped really high a few times and somehow, I don't know how, managed to blow out all the pin needles that have been clogging up the gutters all over the law(Ok ive been a bit lazy with regards to that) so hey, I'll take the win hahahaha.

Strong gusts of wind in Westbank. Odd droplet of rain, still dry. I can hear thunder in the distance. Hope it holds off until my steak is BBQ'd!

Brief spat of hail here in Joe Rich. Touch of rain, too.

I think the ground is dusty-dry again already.

The last thing any of the fire crews need right now is a big wind.

It'll be disappointing if the rain misses us. It's all to the west but doesn't appear to be heading this way. All we're getting is lightning and not much rain.
