Texas just had per the news, flooding of epic, biblical proportions. Two things to consider. Texas was in a severe drought, as California is now, so maybe this is MOTHER NATURE CATCHING UP.

I know that the rule of ATS is that if there are no pics, it didn't happen. But this DID,
Last night, in Central coast area of CA, we experienced a never before intense lightning, thunder, and rain storm. It is still rolling thunder as I type this. As I posted previously, I am a CA native and have lived in this area for all of my 53 years of life. I have NEVER experienced the relentless lightning and thunder storm we experienced beginning last night around midnight. my dogs, all 7 of them, were besides themselves with fear. Needless to say, I got little sleep.
This storm has an unnatural feel about it. We need the rain, quite desperately, but Im telling you this was different in a intensity and duration; it literally parked over my neighborhood and hell unleashed for hours. Flash lightning and bolt lighting, rolling, roaring, house shaking thunder. Rain poured without wind. Looking out the window, I see no noticable wind.
This is bizarre. But as bizzare as it is, I thank the Creator for the much , much needed rain.
If this is posted in the wrong forun, please move it, ans my apologies.
Anyone else experience this Ca weather event?

I will never forget a storm that rolled through central ohio back in like 2002 or 2003. Ive never been so alarmed in my life.
It was dead of winter, we had good 3 or 4 inchs of snow cover. Not a typical time for severe weather like that here. Storm rolled in middle of the night, jolted me outta bed. I thought we were being bombed, the lightning was so intense and frequent that there was no rolling thunder. It sounded like explosions less than a full second appart. Just boom, boom, boom, boom.
I have never experianced anything like it before or sense.
