    I'd just like to have a good old fashion fall. I dislike fall when we have overly hot days or even snow.  

    absolutely fantastic sleeping weather 53 this morning

    have any of you ever done this ride? i have always wanted to, maybe i will this year


    Be ready for a heavy traffic and numerous people.  It's worth the experience if you've never done it; however, I will warn you that it was very busy the ONE time we went years ago.  I prefer to ride my bike up the rail trail.

    And you were the big winner.  My dad near valley green and had water in his basement. 

    Yeah...at one point according to Newberry Twp police website, there was no way to get in/out of my location via road.  I never left as I was trying to divert water from house and not have to clean up basement...again!  I use a standard 10:1 COCORAHS type rain gauge and was measuring about every hour or so throughout the day.  From 3:30 pm to about 5 pm was the greatest rate (but even the "moderate" rain was heavy all day!).  I've been measuring precip for COCORAHS since 2010 or so.  It's easier now for me to go out and get soaked by a tropical rain than melt a column and get the liquid equivalent!  When I was younger, I'd do snow angels and pack snow against the tent.  Now I'd like to have weather every day like what we had today; Sept 2, 2021!  I love weather...and moreso, I love the meteorology and the outdoors!

    Several comments here.

    1. it’s 3 days short of a record.

    2. this is the first time in recorded history that MDT made it through July and August without dropping below 60.

    3. Five of the top ten have been in the last 6 years.

    Warm AMO cycle with higher dew points and thus warmer minimums.

    MDT is at 5.12” as of 5 pm. Won’t add much more it appears (at least I don’t think it’ll add .5”) so it’ll be the 5th rainiest September day it seems. 

    I'm 2.25 miles SSW of KMDT and have received 6.89" as of 5:15 pm!  I hope you're right about that 1/2 inch prediction!

    Thanks! CTP shows .43" for my area. Hopefully smart minds (boss or receiver) say to park the truck.

    Was on I-81 from Wilkes Barre south to I-78 couple of hours ago; light freezing drizzle was icing my truck and windshield, but the roads were still just wet.  But the "sun" was still up at that time...I personally would be in park now that the sun has set...
