“I wish you could send that rain up here.”

“We have got hammered the last 3 days straight with the afternoon thunderstorms. My rain guage measured 2.86 inches this morning.
Rest of the week looks cooler with little chance of rain.”
“wow...we just had some nasty weather go thru.....sounds like Mobile may have a damaged WalMart”
“Batten down the hatches, michiganers, looks like tornado weather...
might hit us in NW indiana too. Looks like I need to turn the weather radio on tonight.”
rough afternoon weather,,,,”
“We've had rain almost every day for two months in Texas. I am SOOOO sick of it! It should have been summer all that time. How can a low pressure system park and stay in place for weeks at a time?”
“Sheesh... I've been helping the clean up here at work on the ground floor that had flooded this morning. I guess we got about 3" of rain here in one hour early this morning YIKES. It flooded the ER, the caffeteria, even the doctors lounge.....Crazy Weather!”
Looks like we're getting more.
“I found out that dietary here at the hospital had 3 feet of water!! and ER was flooded too---when the doors opened for an ambulance bringing in a patient, waves of water came in as well....
Looks like it's going to be another interesting basement flooding night. WK, I hope you have your sump pump working!

...FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM CDT /2 AM EDT/ FRIDAY

* FROM 1 AM CDT /2 AM EDT/ FRIDAY THROUGH LATE FRIDAY NIGHT
* A STRONG COLD FRONT DROPPING OUT OF THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY
WILL TRACK THROUGH WISCONSIN THIS EVENING AND INTO NORTHWESTERN
ILLINOIS LATE TONIGHT. THE FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK
SOUTHEAST THROUGH NORTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS AND INTO NORTHWESTERN
INDIANA TOMORROW MORNING. THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE
FRONT WILL BE ENHANCED BY AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WHICH WILL
FURTHER FOCUS THE CONVECTIVE ACTIVITY. THE OLD UPPER LOW WILL
CONTINUE TO HAVE A LINGERING INFLUENCE BY ALLOWING MOISTURE
LEVELS TO CONTINUE TO INCREASE ACROSS THE AREA. STORM TOTAL
PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS OF AROUND TWO INCHES ARE VERY LIKELY WITH
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE.
* LOCATIONS WHICH RECEIVED HEAVY RAINFALL EARLIER TODAY WILL NEED
TO BE CLOSELY MONITORED. THE FOX RIVER VALLEY AND THE CALUMET
RIVER BASIN HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED UPWARDS OF 4 INCHES OF
RAINFALL AND SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE
TO IMPACT THESE AREAS THROUGH THE EVENING HOURS TONIGHT. IT WILL
NOT TAKE MUCH ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL THE CAUSE SERIOUS
FLOODING PROBLEMS IN THESE LOCATIONS.
A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP THAT LEAD
TO FLASH FLOODING. FLASH FLOODING IS A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION.
YOU SHOULD MONITOR LATER FORECASTS AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION
SHOULD FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS BE ISSUED.”
“Our basement took water again.”
“In the last year and 27 days I've had 3/4" of rain here in the hot brown desert.”
“I wish we'd get more rain here.One of the problems I've already learned with reservoir-source water is that this time of year, if there isn't a lot of rain, there's an algae bloom and you can smell and taste that stuff in the tap water. It's just like my koi bin water. Just for giggles I tested the tap water for nitrates and nitrites (I test the koi's water all that time) and lo and behold the levels were enough to register. Yuck.”
is it a finished basement?”
“south korean summer sucks ass big time. ive got the a/c cranked and still sitting in a sticky film”
“nothing worse then ball soup, eh crash?”
is it a finished basement?”
Used to be...”
“got yer basement fixed yet WK??? ready for another round?
“Highland just got 5 inches of rain in less than 1 hour. I swear, someone does not want me to waterproof my basement.”
“I'd take it!”
The told us to abandon our trailor and find a ditch....
“crap...its starting up again.”
“huh...........my front yard is under water.”
“I hope we get some of that water tonight.”
“Hey there, Currahee! You have a drought too?”
“Whooo boy what an intresting evening it was last night. we had a tornado touch down in the area! Ever wonder what GOLF BALL size hail does??? look no farther then my patio roor....which is all indentined now!”
“I got hit with a few of those last night”
“First off, what the hell is a roor? And are you saying your roor has dents in it or that you are forcing it to work for 7 years before you give it its freedom?”
“roof...sorry! typo lol”
“I was just thinking that it sure has been rainy lately, so I looked up what our totals have been. For the month of August to-date the average rainfall is 4.46 inches. So far this month we have received 16.67 inchest. Sure am glad we waterproofed the basement.”
“Watch out for all the innuendo now.”
“Eff, we'll be pushing the 90 degree mark again a few times over the next week. No rain either.”
“90 is expected up here again on Friday.”
It's October, not July dangit! This drought is the worst I've ever seen, too. It makes 1998/99 in Florida (when we had all those wildfires) look paltry and moist.”
“10 four on that tb! We had the rain, too much of it, that you guys need. We could have sent you 10 inches and still had 10 inches left”
“I talked to a friend in Jacksonville FL today; she got 14 inches of rain yesterday. Just in that 24 hour period. Many roads and schools are flooded there.”
“Our son is up in the Catskills NY working at a camp, so he sleeps in a tent. So once in a while I watch the weather to see how it is up there for him.
The other night I was watching the weather and they came into the weather with a story of a hurrican that was hitting Rosco (which is on the other side of the mountain to where my son is).
they were showing pics of houses getting blown away, streams looking like HUGE waterfalls, trees falling all over the place......you get the pic.
I was standing there in pure terror nearing tears...
then they went on to the next story.
it was about he hurrican that was hitting Texas.
well it seems some one messed up and the pics I had seen before were really pics of the REAL hurrican in Texas..
stupid freakin crack munching mornons!!”
“There's a report here about a couple 4 dys into a kayak trip in Algonquin Park whose tent was hit by lightening. The woman's hair was singewd, but the are otherwise unharmed.”
Look out Nicole!”
“Is it a bad thing when you keep getting thunderstorm after thunderstorm moving in from the southeast?”
“You will be getting a lot of moisture”
“Send 'em this way. We need them. This year's drought is technically worse (less rain than last year) but people aren't feeling it because of proper water management and long standing restrictions, and no heat wave, except for a 100 degree burp in early June.”
“So what else is new? It's rained here almost every day since the beginning of June.”
“Treebait, I'd gladly send some rain your way. My area is over 8" above average in rain fall since the first of the year. About 4 of those inches was from last month.”
“My area's about 20 inches below where it should be.”
“Picked up almost 3" of rain yesterday. More in the forecast for the next 3 days. August isn't even half over and the rainfall amount is just .30" below the month average. The Hudson is a nice chocolate brown color this morning. I wonder how much more water it can handle before it floods.”
“Guess what? It's raining like mad again.”
“We've had 4.36 inches of rain since the first of July.”
“I hear ya, Zac.
At one point I had my backpack loaded and riding on my rear seat for two weeks waiting for hiking weather. I finally gave up and took my sleeping bag out of its compression sack.
Can't even fish.
The only good weather we had was when my buddy and I went to Gettysburg and it rained there.
No hope of getting hay off the fields. The Farm Report on CBC radio said many farmers never got all the first cut off and we should be on the third cut now.
About half the corn crop, both sweet and cow has been lost and there are large ponds in the fields. Soy is just about a write-off.
I can't even get my new kayak on the water.
Might as well sit at the computer.
