Don't jinx it

Do you guys think we'll get a lot of thunderstorms this summer? Last year was the best year since 1999 for storms. I was only 8 at the time but remember that summer well.

a lot of the downtown streets are a bit flooded, couple hours ago even towards Lions Gate on W. Georgia 3 lanes and sidewalk were submerged with about 2-3ft of water.

Thankfully the weekend into next week warm up with a lot of sun. And usually September is nice around here, it gets nasty around Halloween and than it's downhill from there until June.

I was filming this out of my window last night when a flash of lightning killed all of the street lights and then the thunder followed a few seconds later...

The thunderstorms here are getting more frequent and intense every year. Remember the big storms last summer? And then a couple of years before that there was the storm with the fireworks, then it hit 30+ degrees for five straight days.

Needless to say I did not get much sleep last night.

no thunderstorms have been pretty tame and sparse imo

back when I was a kid there would always be wild lightning/thunderstorms and they were fantastic to watch still remember sitting on the porch with my dad just watching the light show

that rarely happens anymore

Where are you from?

I've lived here all my life and I can remember some really bad storms. In July 1997 there were 7000 lightning strikes in an hour and a half over the mainland and the Island. That shit kept me up too (I was 6). My dad told me about one in '92 that flooded the Massey Tunnel.
