9.49 PM

As I type this, our area is being hit by a ferocious thunderstorm. It was only raining when I walked outside to get my root beer from the store, but now the roads are rivers, and the lawn is half-white with small, grape-sized hail. At one point, there was a thunderclap that sounded like a large gunshot.

Damn, I love this weather.

EDIT:

12.54 AM

Slight flooding in the basement, looks like the ground was just that saturated. Moved all the furniture off the wall and now we're standing on towels to absorb the water. Thankfully, we're getting off with a bit of dampness. It's still raining mediumly, and thunder and lightning are frequent.

Yesterday was totally calm here. Sunny all day long. Funny how weather can be totally different several hundred miles away.

Is it rule-breaking if there's already a tag?

 
Jacob
Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
Mike
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Dean
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
