Heavy Rain Around Barneveleld

I drove up the kuyahoora valley to route 12 and tried to position myself in front of the incoming storms. There was a lot of heavy rain, but the lightining wasn't as impressive there. I used my radio to pick up lightning. I could here the crackle frequently when the storms where in western Oneida. When the storms approached Herkimer County the crackle became less frequent. I countinued south into Utica trying to get under a outflow boundry and get ahead of it on 5s. I managed to get in front of two cells that merged into a line near Salisbury. There was again torrential downpours, but very little lightning. It looked like the storm clouds you get in fall weather.
