  1. We'll miss you, Mack. You've been a mainstay of this forum for many years. Best wishes in Iowa! Enjoy all the snow that you will get there!
  2. High of 58 IMBY. On June 16! Just. Wow. Also, over 2 inches of rainfall today too. That was quite the busted NWS forecast of 0.25-0.50 for the day. The rain and drizzle continues even now... Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  3. Loved that first shot, in particular. The yellow flowers with the storm in the distance made for a nice contrast. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  4. Had over 2 inches of torrential rainfall IMBY overnight. Several training storms from 10ish to 2ish this morning. It had been a while since I had any significant rainfall, so we needed it.
  5. After an NWS spot forecast this morning for less than a tenth of an inch of rainfall today here in north Hickory, the rain from TS Bertha is slowly winding down and almost out of here. My gauge has measured 2.45 inches so far. Now, that's a busted forecast.
  6. Yeah, Internet Exploder should be way down on your list of preferred browsers. You might even try Netscape Navigator before IE. [emoji16] Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  7. Wow! Those are some impressive numbers you guys are reporting so far. Still hovering around 2.25 inches for the event here IMBY in Hickory and have been in a lull all morning. Seems kind of low for the WPC's original outlook of 5-7 inches for the Hickory area. Of course, there is still a lot more potential in the next 48 hours. I love these cool May temperatures, though. I will be wishing greatly for them come July. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  8. What is your location, gman. I can't see it on Tapatalk. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  9. Just passed the 2-inch mark for the day here shortly before midnight. Steady moderate rainfall continues. Barely anything on radar and yet it comes down heavily. Very high low-level forcing I would venture. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  10. Wow! That's a two-inch difference in only a few short miles. I don't guess we have any chance of seeing the sun until Friday, at the earliest. Cool, rainy, cloudy weather for several days. I can't complain too much for mid-May.
  11. Surprisingly, I've only gotten 0.68 inch out of this flow so far. However, as the orientation turns more SE to NW, I do expect a significant increase. I'm not complaining, though. I prefer my rainfall in sustained gentle showers rather than intense tropical downpours. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  12. Here are a few more pictures from my Mt. Rogers hike on May 9:
  13. Hiked to top of Mt. Rogers, VA, today. Left the parking lot at Elk Garden at 10 AM and 31 F on the car thermometer. The wind was ripping. Once we got in the trees on the AT, it wasn't too bad, though. Beautiful clear blue sky and skiff of snow everywhere. Maybe an inch at the top. The rime ice was impressive too. We did 9.9 miles in total, according to Gaia GPS. Now that was a perfect May 9! Here are a few pics:
  14. 37 F was the low IMBY. Awesome for early May!
  15. 2.6+ inches of rain last night. A gully washer. I'm now over 8 inches of rainfall above pace on my 8-year average. Wet it is.
