We came down US127 through much of Ohio, and passed through the bottom of a goodly storm cell. We drove through hard rain for maybe fifteen minutes—that would be fifteen LONG minutes. Lesser rain lasted for, maybe another forty minutes. The rain in this cell came down so hard that it was standing in the fields, making the corn little green sprigs in a flowing lake. (I don’t know if this was the tag end of the Texas/Arkansas storm.)
The other notable cell we passed beneath was this one, in Kentucky. We were a bit buffeted by the wind by this one, whereas during the Ohio one we just noticed downdrafts, but not lateral winds.
