Here in our little valley we got 1.55” (40 mm) of precipitation. Lots of trees got trimmed by the hail, and Chocolate Creek (so named for its color when a fake gold mine above our land used to flood) was roaring for a while. We still have electricity since we make our own. But we hear only a hum on the phone line. More thunderstorms are predicted for today.
