Severe Thunderstorm Warning

I have the regional radar loop at the bottom of this post.

**update** 4.02pm I am at WCU in Cullowhee, and have heard a crack or two of thunder, and one good lightning strike, which I believe I caught on video.

Wunderground has an excellent Radar Feature that allows you to track storms.

There is one that could be coming through in 30 minutes or so…

**update** 4.37pm The storm came though. Nothing much here. Will have photos and maybe an edited video by 7pm. I have to leave here at 5pm, and won’t get home until 6pm.

Is Hillary Clinton Stupid?

The Clinton Campaign has placed journalists covering her campaign in a bathroom. No, this not a joke. This is just stupid. That is like putting house guests in the bathroom.

Read about it at Daily Kos, and wonder why people ever thought she was the smartest woman in politics.
