BGE: Thank you for your patience
If you witnessed the thunderstorms that hit the area late Friday night, you might have thought that they seemed more intense than normal — stronger winds, more frequent lightning. But almost as suddenly as they formed, they were gone again, and the rain and wind had even temporarily exchanged the scorching heat for some slightly more tolerable temperatures. Your lights may have flickered or you lost power altogether, but to many, it may have seemed to be a summer storm like any other.
