Yep, that was some thunderstorm Thursday night

by Linda Hubbard on April 13, 2012

Afternoon update from Bill Russ: “Checked my gauge this afternoon, and there was another .1″ that must have fallen when I was out for coffee this morning. This means 11.65″ year-to-date compared to 19.55″ last year. The 2010-2011 rain year topped out at 20.8 inches.”

If you thought it was loud on the mid-Peninsula last night, your ears weren’t deceiving you. The National Weather Service reported 750 lightening strikes between the period of 8:00 pm and midnight. San Francisco-based photographers captured some amazing scenes, posted online at sfist.

Here in Menlo Park, reports Bill Russ:  “A fresh .9″ in my gauge as of 7:oo am, bringing the year-to-date to 11.55″.” The sun and clouds are expected to play tag the rest of the day. The rhododendron spotted on Bay Laurel Dr. was enjoying a sunny moment.

Did you get any photos of the lightening over Menlo Park or Atherton? We’d love to see them; send to tips[at]inmenlo.com.
