  1. Wow at Odenton -- looks like 4 or 5 different cells just coalesced over top of them. Gonna be wild there for a bit.
  2. I am going to run the sprinklers hard this evening. I am convinced it will not rain at all here today or tomorrow. My yard was dusty and hard as rock when I cut the grass yesterday.
  3. There will be some places that get very heavy rain, but I fully expect to be out watering my hardpan, parched gardens tonight. I am looking forward to lower temps starting tomorrow.
  4. If we are driving to Ocean City on Saturday, do we need a fanboat? Cutting the grass right now. It is HOT!
  5. A very nice setting you have there! After 20 years we are tiring of being in a tight development with houses 20-30 feet away. I mean, the back walls of the houses behind are literally in our face. With so many yards close by, it's a rule that at least one lawnmower fires up as soon as we try to enjoy the deck in the evening. Being a federal employee and looking at much more telework in the future, I am eyeballing Carroll County!
  6. Amazing. Imagine what that looked like coming down. I remember hearing about the unbelievable rain that Maria dropped in this town in Puerto Rico, including 40 inches in 24 hours. Hurricane Maria dropped 14 inches in one hour on Caguas, Puerto Rico
  7. Nothing at all after two days of flood watches. Good thing I got 1.85" from Isaias because I think yesterday was the last chance for rain for a long time.
  8. Yup. That big storm last night sat 5-10 miles from me for a couple hours. Heard the thunder but missed. I knew today would be a shutout.
  9. Got 0.00 yesterday evening and expect the same today.
  10. Wow that must have woke you up. I heard thunder around that time but only got 0.2 here. I hope no heavy rains today for my beleaguered relatives in Calvert County.
  11. I have a niece that lives in the same Prince Frederick neighborhood being referenced above (Built Wrong Homes). This first pic was her fenced in back yard this morning, and the second is the river, I mean street, in front.
  12. Final amount 2.35, with 0.5 coming yesterday in those showers. Parents in Owings say they measured 8 inches. They got some water in basement due to clogged gutter above.
  13. Bad news for my niece in Prince Frederick. Her new townhouse (three months old) flooded badly. Bottom floor ruined. This is her second flood and she wants out. Sad for her. Winding down in Germantown with just over 2" total (including 0.5 from yesterday. This was a perfect, spread out soaking rain for my lawn and gardens. I feel bad for people suffering damage.
  14. Parents in Owings (Calvert) reporting 5" rain and power out.
  15. Like Mappy said, Sandy Point would be a good spot. The northern Calvert beaches are closed, and they're real narrow. Sandy Point is really wide and would be a great spot assuming they stay open. Sandy Point
  16. My bar for the whole event is 1 inch.
  17. Butterflies have shown up big time. Lots of tigers especially. It's funny how they seem to show up at once.
  18. Nothing overnight. It's so dry here I am even doubting the big rain they are advertising for Tuesday.
  19. Was reading this from LWX's disco about potential heavy rain. What is a "PRE"? Tropical moisture will be surging northward on Monday ahead of an upper level trof and in advance of Isaias. Global models have been indicating development of a PRE over the past couple of days as upper trof and jet dynamics interact favorably with Isaias.
  20. Thanks for pointing out the new CoCoRaHS map. Check out the one-day for George Town, Bahamas.
  21. I've been wanting an all-day cool rain day like this. I just wish I got more than 0.5, but I'll take it. After a very wet June, I got a total of 3.5 for July. Looking forward to August and the average high dropping to mid-80s by the end of the month.
  22. Calling 0.00 for Germantown. Sprinkler city.
  23. Here is my overnight rain showing up on radar! Seriously though, I am looking forward to a break in the heat over the next few days. Also just four weeks until our average high gets down to 85.
  24. That's exactly my location, and I'll be surprised if I get rain.
  25. Can't believe I missed all the storms this week with just light showers. The Central MD Desert Zone is back. I'll be watering everything today.
