  1. After rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Delta, I have now recorded over 79 inches of rainfall IMBY, making this the rainiest year on record for my nine years at this location. And...there are still 2.5 months remaining in this calendar year. Wow.
  2. That's the spirit. Vote early and vote often. [emoji16] Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  3. Check out ASU's Fall Color report and map for updated leaf conditions: https://biology.appstate.edu/fall-colors
  4. You just beat me, Strong. [emoji16] 42.8 F here. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  5. Ha! Good catch. Slipped up there. Sally, not Sandy. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  6. I got around 2.5 inches from Sandy. Looks like the GSP forecast was pretty much on the money. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  7. That was it! Now I remember. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, one of the last times it significantly snowed in October, the Blowing Rock area got around 4-6 inches on Halloween. I think that was 5-8 years ago. I took the kids up the mountain to go sledding. We had a blast. I then expected a rockin' winter, and it turned out to be very mild, unfortunately.
  9. Wow! Those are big amounts around Hickory on the Euro. Much bigger than the NAM, WPC, and NWS.
  10. Latest rainfall forecast on the 3K NAM:
  11. Latest rainfall forecast from NWS GSP:

  13. Wow! Now that's a hike/run. I have hiked profile several times but never scout. Need to do that soon, but not running. [emoji16] Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  14. Well, the latter portion of the month of August was much drier IMBY. Gonna round out the month with 16.43 inches of total rainfall unless I get any rogue sprinkles in the next hour. Still very impressive but not quite historic. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  15. Another 0.91 inch of rain today. Maybe more tonight? Unsure. Up to 15.53 inches for the month of August. Just need 4.5 inches more over the next ten days to make it to 20. That's doable. Right? Tropical storms in the mix for next week... Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  16. Guess what? Another half inch of rain IMBY today. The march toward the 20-inch mark continues...
  17. Yeah, I'm up to 14.11 inches for the month. Can I break 20? Never done that before. I think 17 is my previous max for one month. Oh, yeah, it's raining... Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  18. Almost another inch of rainfall today from a thin line of storms. (0.97 inch to be exact.) The rainfall is truly prolific this year! Just amazing! Drought? What's a drought? I think I live in a swamp now. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  19. Really bad photo (lighting was horrific), but you can see the whirlpool and suction created when I finally got some clearance on the drain. I then had to man that spot for a couple of hours to keep it free from debris. Otherwise, all that water goes across the road, down my driveway, and right at my house, putting incredible pressure on my basement wall. I'm gonna have to talk to the city and see what they could do to alleviate this situation, if anything. New drainage system with dial sump pumps was still working hard to combat the water. Nice respite so far today, but I expect the rain to pick up again soon. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  20. Yep, it was crazy. Started raining around 8:00 PM lat night. Picked up 2 inches by 1 AM. Then, it really began to rain. Picked up another 6 inches by 3 AM. Just torrential buckets of rainfall. I have now recorded 8.93 inches of rainfall since it started last night. 8.93?!?! I was outside with a metal rake and wading boots for the 1-3 AM timeframe, fighting to keep a storm drain clear so my basement wouldn't flood again. With a new interior drainage system and by God's grace, we remain dry inside. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  21. Lots of rain IMBY last night - over 1.3 inches. Tonight is a repeat. The heaviest rain has been all around us, but still another decent amount. The rain this year has been prolific. It's the beginning of August, and I'm only 3-4 inches off my average yearly total for this location.
  22. Really strange evening on the storm front: Storm blew up right over my house around 8:30. Radar returns showed bright yellows over me, and yet not a drop fell from the skies. Then, as I was falling asleep around 10:30, I was rattled back awake by loud cracks of thunder, as another storm had developed over me. This one dropped a little over a tenth of inch. Finally, I was awakened around 1:00 AM, with very heavy rain, lightning, and thunder for another 0.68 inch of rain. Typically, the storm activity diminishes as the evening wears on, but last night it seemed to do the exact opposite and get stronger as the hours passed. Weird.
  23. Another 0.86 inch of rainfall IMBY this afternoon. It all fell in about a half hour too. Just torrential rainfall. The wet period continues here in the lee of the mountains. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  24. Another potent tropical downpour this afternoon. Just shy of another half inch in just 20 minutes or so. It's very wet compared to the past two weeks here in Hickory. Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
  25. Pretty rainy the past couple of days here in Hickory, and the rain chances remain fairly high for the remainder of the week. I received over half an inch of rainfall on Sunday and over 1.5 inches on Monday IMBY. Rain chances from NWS GSP for my area are 70% or greater for three out of the next four days. The humidity is high... Sent from my moto e5 supra using Tapatalk
