  4. OOPS, meant to say flood warning. But for the usual trouble spots such as S. Glebe Road and the I-395 underpasses, makes not much difference. And WTOP just announced that Columbia Pike is underwater at S. Greenbrier.

  8. So far, DCA has picked up 0.94" for the event. USGS at Four Mile Run just now is starting to record some new precipitation.
  9. The silly weather radio keeps beeping me. At least LWX appears to have dropped the habit of whooping at me.
  10. USGS indicates the gauge at Four Mile Run in Alexandria picked up just about 4 inches of rain. It almost hit flood stage, but is back down. DCA picked up 2.62 for the event.
  11. Can't SOMEBODY please tell NOAA radio to quit referring to Fred as Frederic?? Frederic was 1979.

  22. Here's hoping that everyone has lots of cereal, nuts and other things not needing a refrigerator. AND a manual can opener for opening tinned meat ((which doesn't need to be cooked)). ((No news on people making a dash for the stores that might lose power...)
  23. I went down to Hains Point in DC this morning, and only one cherry tree near parking area 19 was starting to show anything. Maybe in another week. There was quite a bit of flooding covering some of the sidewalks, even in some areas that hadn't been closed off.
