    Welcome to summer everybody!

    I love when “Severe Thunderstorm Watch” starts to mean “Wednesday.”

    Wonder if it will be as bad as the huge thunderstorms yesterday that prompted the Nats mangement to cancel the game … at 1030am! What a joke. It didn’t rain until 9pm last night. Weak

      at 2 PM the rain on 14th Street bridge was incredible.
      these storms are so isolated it is crazy.
      almost like the rapture is coming or something.
