I'm a little under an hour east of Toronto on the 401 (meaningless if you aren't from Ontario, let alone Canada) and yeah, the weather has been nuts
these last few weeks. There was basically a province-wide tornado warning that lasted some 6 hours, with two separate touch-downs, there have been
record rains and torrents all over, there was the storm last week that basically woke up the southern end of the province at 3:00 AM - just two
rumbles in the distance, then one standard, then one less than 100 yards from my house, then a downpour started and our streets had a minor flood for
about an hour under constant lightning. I saw one of the main cells through my window later on as the rain subsided and timed and averaged lightning.
For a period of 45 minutes (how long the cloud was in view) There was a flash every 2-2.5 seconds. Thunder every 6. Then there's Peterborough, wow,
