  1. More then that. Skeeters are massive and fungal issues are out of control in the garden. I've got corn falling over due to soil becoming mud and rotting tomato plants. It's something EVERY season.
  2. We've been getting hammered all summer. My area has had a pretty incredible amount of rain in the past month. I picked up 3" yesterday and overnight.
  3. Looks like another 4" training storm event for AACO. It's been pretty incredibly wet in my local area for the past month.
  4. Heavy tropical rain and lightning here at the moment. Hopefully it stays just heavy rain. I don't need any strong winds right now.
  5. Models showing a non winter? That's fantastic! Big winter incoming.
  6. Best storm I've seen in a couple years while in Severna Park. It was about 3 when I noticed it building to my NNE. It moved south along the bay breeze boundary. It was really cool (because my gardens weren't being affected) Lots of lightning strikes, hail, super heavy rain and wind. The hail was impressive. It blasted holes in some zucchini plants i saw. Glad it didn't hit my garden.
  7. Hey, it rained last night. Looks like about .35" in the bucket. The garden should be happy with that.
  8. The haves and have nots is pretty amazing around here. I was out near Federalsburg today and it was dry as a bone. Corn was all curled. Got back to the jungle (my mini farm) just in time to get swamped by another storm. I got a little over a inch today. That's about 7.25" in 7 days. My corn is head high and starting to tassel. No curls here.
  9. I've had over 6" of rain since Saturday. No sprinkler here for a while.
  10. Nothing here yesterday but some distance thunder a couple wind gust from outflow and light shower. After 4" on Saturday I'm good with drying out for a few days.
  11. Got home from work and was surprised to see just shy of 4" in my bucket. From radar I was estimating I got between 2.5-3". I was worried about my corn lodging (falling over) with that much water in soil alone with the wind i hear we also had. Everything is fine thankfully. With growing crops it's surviving from storm to storm.
  12. Radar starting to light up to the SW. Hopefully we can get some storms around here today.
  13. Medical marijuana works wonders on my chronic stomach issues. A couple puffs and 30 minutes later I'm ready to eat.
  14. That's about all I got here also. At least I didn't have to run the sprinklers for one evening. Edit: just checked the rain bucket. Looks like little bit over half inch. Not bad.
  15. Was it supposed to rain? HRR hardly had anything. I'll be running sprinklers this evening because it doesn't look like much rain any time soon.
  16. I guess my sprinklers won't get a break next week after all. That little bit of rain i got yesterday didn't do much. Getting pretty dry here again.
  17. Looks like some scattered showers on radar this morning. Glad I ran the sprinklers on my corn last night. Only ended up with .05" from a shower overnight. HRRR gives my area east of DC more storms today. Not so much west of the city.
  18. I've got a 60×50' fenced in garden. I also have a 40×50' corn plot. The corn plots need consistent watering. I don't care about my grass. My corn is the only grass on property I care about lol.
  19. Another perfect morning in the garden. Sunny and 60. Looks like the sprinklers will be busy this week.
  20. They sure did. Flood flood watch through noon tomorrow. We do feast or famine really good around here. Except for snow. Just famine there lol
  21. Yeah. I work in the Severna Park area. Should be lots of standing water today. I live about 12 miles SW of there. 1.70" here. Nice stormy night for sure.
  22. Get one on a tripod. I've got 2 going in my garden. Looking like some seriously dry weather incoming after we fail today and Tomorrow.
  23. Any prospects for rain? I don't bother with severe around here. Widespread severe has happened like twice in the 41 years of my life.
  24. Glad I set my sprinklers up last night. I know how these stormy days end up this time of year. I didn't want to be out there setting up sprinklers for my corn in this heat and humidity. Cloudy, humid and increasingly dry.
  25. I've got a batch of corn that broke the surface in 5 days. Usually takes 7. Must be good seed bursting weather.
