While I was at work this morning Jillian and I heard some loud noises outside. We thought that maybe it was a garbage truck going by or something like that. We heard the noise again... Hmmm... What was that? THUNDER... THUNDER AND LIGHTNING!! It took us a few of those 'booms' to figure out what it was because we NEVER get THUNDER (especially when we had no rain... weird)... And of course, since there was 'weather' today, it made the news :)

SAN DIEGO – Many county residents woke to rumbles of thunder Monday morning, and some commuters were treated to rainbows and streaks of lightning.

Brief downpours were reported in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Mission Valley and Rancho Bernardo. The Oceanside Airport, which recorded 0.05 of an inch of rain, was the wettest spot in the county. Lindbergh Field, San Diego's official weather station, reported a trace of rain.

Rain and strong winds were also reported in Spring Valley, La Mesa and eastern Carmel Valley, according to authorities. A lightning strike reportedly set a tree on fire in Rancho Bernardo.
National Weather Service forecasters said a slight chance of thunderstorms remained for areas west of the mountains until Monday evening. The mountains could get storms through Tuesday.
