NC drought relief; back to WV
Got in one more North Carolinan expedition today, which will be the last of my nearly three-week stay in Raleigh. Today's cells were very tropical storm-like, with blinding, gusty downpours but no lightning that I saw. As a result, not much to report. All things considered, this April has been fairly active for central NC, bringing a few nice opportunities but mostly well-needed (but boring) rainfall. The ground has been soaked quite a few times in the Raleigh area in recent weeks, putting a good dent in the long drought that has been in place.
I will return to West Virginia on Wednesday, in preparation for the possibility of a few Plains trips as severe weather season peaks. A couple of unexpected web contracts have come in this month, which may allow me to make a short weather expedition on my own in the next couple of weeks.
I had an expedition partner today for my brief run around southern Wake County (dog-sitting my brother's dog Beau):
Like me, she got bored with the heavy downpours with no lightning:
Seeing as how I was driving, I wasn't lucky enough to also get a nap in before getting back home.
