Heavy Thunder and Lightning in Tallahassee

Heavy Downpour, Hail, Thunder and Lightning

Wednesday, June 25, 2008; 6-11 PM

Tallahassee, FL 32317

The rain started to come down around 5:30 PM. As we were driving home from work at the intersection of Miccosukee and Magnolia garbanzo  bean-sized hail started to fall on our car. The hail then quickly turned into heavy rain drops. But the rains stopped around 6:15 PM. We thought everything was OK.

Then around 9:45 it started again. This time around our neighborhood there was less of rain and hail but we couldn’t sleep due to the loud and constant rumbling of the thunder and almost blinding lightning. Most of the thunder and lightning seemed to be confined to the south and southeastern part of the Leon county. It went on and on for about 1 1/2 hour. Then it started rain slightly. When it was done it was almost 11:45 PM.

Hot air balloon over our neighborhood

Gardens of Weem Plantation

Tallahassee, FL 32317


We spotted a descending hot air balloon on early this morning. It looked like the balloon was touching some of the tree tops north of our neighborhood, Gardens of Weems Plantation. We could spot couple of people inside. Soon it landed near the east side of our neighborhood. One of my neighbors went and spoke to the riders. They mentioned to her that the winds were not good and therefore they decided to land sooner than they had anticipated.
