Bizarro Weather

Last night we had an electrical storm unlike any I'd ever seen. It wasn't particularly loud and there was almost no wind, but the lightning was almost constant, just flashing brighter and softer for over half an hour like a faulty fluorescent light. This afternoon, the rain came in a downpour with strong winds, looking rather like a hurricane.

I've read that one of the most visible early signs of global warming will be (is) more unpredictable and violent weather. Michigan weather has always been unpredictable, but it sure seems to be getting even more so in recent years.
