Video ~ Late summer thunderstorm over Tacoma

Last night the earth and sky rumbled over Tacoma. A great thunderstorm and associated squall slammed into us. Sarah and I had fun watching it approach from our upstairs window.

The blob on the radar cruised from Olympia and directly over Tacoma. We saw lightning for a half hour or so before we heard any thunder. Looked like most of it was contained within the clouds. A downpour drenched local streets and, had it arrived five hours earlier, would've put a real damper on our Labor Day BBQ. Though I'm thankful we live in the temperate and often weather calm Pacific Northwest, I long for a few more of these storms a year.
