BLACK PINES — Wow, quite the storm moving up the North Thompson Valley tonight. Here are a few screen grabs from some video I shot as it approached Black Pines and Vinsulla about 7:15 p.m.
It was somewhat deceiving at first but when it got overhead it was very strong, with heavy rain, thunder and both streak and sheet lightning. Took about seven minutes to go over, and continued up the valley toward McLure and onward.
I was thankful to have the cover of my front porch but I got drenched anyway. This will, no doubt, bring the river up a few more inches.
