    Disappointing here given how crazy the radar looked, but I guess there had to be some losers. Some people really cashed in. Seemed like parts of Anne Arundel and especially PG got hammered.

    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.

    How miserable will it get if there is a major second wave (assuming we ever finish the 1st) in the fall/winter, the football season gets stopped, Thanksgiving then Christmas pretty much are ruined, and the long range guidance is correct and we get another non winter with no snow...because jokes aside all those events are probably odds on favorites to happen right now. 

    Models showing a non winter? That's fantastic! Big winter incoming. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    My stomach has been acting up the last three days which is very unusual for me. I looked up stomach soothing drinks and the closest thing we’ve got in the house is green chartreuse. Syrupy and generally nasty, but doing the trick on my stomach. And my head.

    Medical marijuana works wonders on my chronic stomach issues. A couple puffs and 30 minutes later I'm ready to eat.

    Didn't last long here.

    Total of 0.15" for the day.

    Looks like and miss, pulse type showers in the afternoon and evening over the next few days until whats left of that low finally moves off to the NE.

    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.

    I'm getting ready to call bust on the rain forecast.  

    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.

    Meanwhile, the 12z CMC is dry right through next Saturday.

    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.

  10. 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.

    Do you water your lawn or other areas?  I tried last year watering the lawn and lost my ambition and suffered the consequences. This year I will let it go dormant and hope rains visit at least to keep the crown alive so in the Fall it may bounce back. I have 3/4 acres far too much to water. Even the front with 1/3 acre is too much to consistently water correctly. 

    And yes, the rainfall forecasts have trended drier. 


    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.

    Mesos nailed it! :whistle:

    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

    Looking at the Hi Res rainfall map on weathernet, it appears there was an area of 3-4" amounts just north of Annapolis right along the bay.

    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.

    Not feelin' it for my yard over the next day or 2.

    My sprinkler broke yesterday. Time to head to Lowes for a new one. 

    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.

    close to enhanced risk now. but not liking any of the models this morning. a dying complex heading south.... i'm not too hyped on this one

    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. 

  16. 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.

    No kidding on the seeds. I had some habanada sweet peppers, mortgage lifter tomato, and pickling cucumber seeds go nuts in the past 2-3 days.

    I've got a batch of corn that broke the surface in 5 days. Usually takes 7. Must be good seed bursting weather.
