  1. What a beautiful weekend.  Didn't see my low but the closest station (Gaithersburg) hit 39.  This morning's 7 AM obs ranged from low/mid 30s out west, to 60 at St Mary's City with that Bay water.

    Gonna have to water the gardens good today!  Here is all my rain for the month, with none in sight:

    Sept 2:  0.5

    Sept 3: 0.9

    Sept 10: 0.15

    Was surprised by a hummingbird hitting the feeder hard today. Refreshed all the feeders and hoping to feed them.

    Keep those feeders up for a few more weeks!  I usually have a few travelers through the last week of September, and have seen them as late as Oct. 4.

    I am looking forward to some crisp fall weather this weekend.

    Dang so what is this...just a southern MD/DC event? Had no idea this was an "event" per se...I knew it was supposed to be heavy rain or whatever but...dang, lol

    It seems more and more common to get these crazy deluges in some areas with other areas nearby getting nothing.  It's a thing.

    Both kids are at UMD and say it is just torrential rain with big thunder.  At least they don't have to walk to classes today.

    Sorry!  Your house is gonna feel so good when it's fixed.  This is also going to feel nice:

    Who is ready for a drought?  This is is getting ridiculous...

    Just come to Germantown.  Haven't even had 0.1 yet.  Also haven't gotten more than 1 inch of rain in a day since August 4.

  6. LOL point-and-click forecast for my area has new rainfall of between .5 and .75 inch today and .25 to .5 inch tonight.  Uh hard no, unless they meant millimeters.

    Man is it humid though!  Went for a walk and maybe I'll stop sweating by noon.

    October snow is a death kiss for a good winter in these parts.

    The one I remember was 10/10/1979 with 2-3" in northern Calvert.  The following winter was decent with 20.1 for DCA and 26.8 for IAD.

    Oh and Denver - their last three days were 101, 97 and 93.  Can you even?

  8. So my nephew is in the Army and recently moved from Florida to Colorado Springs.  His nice Dodge Charger got totaled by baseball sized hail a few weeks ago.  Now he's getting treated to highs in the low 90s today with several inches of snow tomorrow and tomorrow night.  Man that climate is nuts!

    Imagine being at a cookout in Denver this afternoon in the low 90s knowing that it will be snowing when you wake up tomorrow.  Wow.

  9. Got 0.9 to go with the 0.5 for Wednesday.  Ready for the beautiful dry weekend.

    Speaking of bugs, I hate the way these new Asian Tiger mosquitoes bite all hours of the day.  Also, anyone else notice how LOUD and relentless the annual cicadas have been this summer?  It's hard to enjoy the deck with those things making my ears bleed.

    1.14” today

    19.68” for the month

    30.10” since July 1


    ^Those aren’t typos :lol:

    Man that is NUTS!  For comparison, I have 5.5 for the month and 9.0 since July 1.  Look at Calvert on this map!  Some less than 6" amounts in northern MD for the same period.  Unreal.

  11. 0.6 yesterday and 0.35 for today.  Sun coming out now. 

    It may not have been a huge amount, but it was mostly a slow, soaking rain which was really needed.  Before yesterday, I only had 0.5 since August 16.

  12. Just got home from moving our younger kid in at University of Maryland and found 0.45 in the gauge from that thunderstorm that rolled thru here around 4:30.  It looked good on Radarscope with some decent lightning.  Wish I got home in time to see it!
