The past couple of days we've had the typical southern scattered thunderstorms in the early evening. Last night's was very damaging in my neighborhood - trees down, lightning strikes knocking out power and cable. I was finished commuting and home drinking my scotch but it occured to me that for roughly half of my commute, it might be 15 minutes or so before I could take cover in a building. Short of knocking on someone's door that is.
What strategy should I adopt if I get caught in one of these storms? For those unfamilar with southern summer showers - they come fast, they can be violent, they are usually pretty short and the forecasters always predict a 30% chance of scattered showers so that's pretty useless in trying to avoid them.
