We rarely get thunder bumpers in this part of Oregon, but when we do, they are awe inspiring. Yesterday evening, one popped up. I know this because I was contemplating going out to feed the hounds when the first boomer rolled over the ranch. I thought it was headed this way, and knew that I would need to peel Gem the BC out of the back of one of the doghouses or crates, so I grabbed the iPad and camera and went out to see. As it turned out, it just rolled on up the Willamette Valley, northward and just to the east side of I-5 and didn't make landfall here. I tracked it for awhile on the StormTracker app for the iPad and I must say, the folks in Albany, Lebanon, Canby and points NE sure must have had a show!
