I'm near Kansas City and the plot of the storm on radar showed the 
surrounded by serious thunderstorms on Friday night.  The rain from the 
storms had passed by Saturday but the electrical content was still very 
high.  I'm sure there was a lot of DX to be had but the QRN here lifted 
the noise floor so far up that even mid strength US stations were tough 
copy at this QTH.
