Grey clouds begin moving in over top of The Summit. Suddenly, lightning begins to violently strike, with thunder booming seconds after each strike. Another West Virginia thunderstorm is about to initiate.
We recently experienced a very intense thunder storm. Winds began to pick up to 20 miles per hour, and the rain was pouring. The wind was so strong, that it began raining sideways. Within 10 minutes, we had received roughly five inches of rain. One of the positive things about West Virginia rain is that it is warm, unlike Alaska’s rain.
