Since we weren’t under any watches or warnings I didn’t make an effort to chase today, especially since I couldn’t get home until after 5:00 pm. As we ate dinner at a local restaurant a cell passed by just to our south, spitting out 3 distinct and loud peals of thunder but little else. Thus as another system built to the south I was already busy mowing the grass and could do little except grind my teeth and take consolation from the fact that I knew the complex was over southern Caroline county, a site which can make the hardiest storm chaser cringe due to the woeful road system and the heavily treed countryside. I did give in to the urge to snap a few pictures after I finished the yard, but that was the best I could do. After all, it is August…
