Rain so hard it sounded like it was coming through the roof

We certainly had some wild weather on Saturday. The infamous Convergence Zone was right over the top of us. Ear-splitting thunder, some lightning, pounding rain, pounding hail - did I miss anything?

Oh yes, there was so much rain coming off my roof that I had a stream three inches deep on my sidewalk.

Did anyone have power outages or lightning strikes? I only noticed one flash of lightning.

After making a dramatic statement in Shoreline, the storm moved east to pound Lake Forest Park and continued to Kenmore, hitting hard at the top of Lake Washington.

At one point my sky was a perfect panorama of weather. Blue sky in the west, shading to blue gray in the east. Pity I'm not a photographer - but here are a collection of storm photos from others.

After the rain and hail scrubbed everything, the sun came out and for a brief time it was a lovely day.
