Man this brings back memories. In North Carolina, a 30% chance of rain means one of two things:

1) it will rain 30% of the day, or
2) at any given moment, it will be raining on 30% of the local land area.

I learned how to rappel and coil ropes very quickly thanks to those storms.

Ive been on a multi pitch rap at stone mountain in NC with the same conditions... lightning and waterfalls everywhere and an inch and a half or two inches of water rushing over your feet. Scary but exhilarating. when we got down, where the wall met the ground was a massive cascading waterfall. When we got to the the field right below the sun shines through the clouds and deer walked out into the meadow. Good Times!

When the weather goes from bad to worse in 5 minutes. That is dime sized hail by the way. If it says 30% chance of rain don't go :)
