4" here last weekend and it filled the septic field, today is the first day the toilet bowl would flush :(

 

 

Too much of a good thing, lol. Modern plumbing is awesome when available. Having a well and losing power enhances one's appreciation.

Overcast and holding in the 60s so far (68F). No echoes on radar that close to me...looks like nothing steady till later this afternoon or evening.

Glenn going with 3-6" in and around Philly for the weekend....looks like a snow map.

I can tell it's not a snow map cause I'm in the bullseye.

Seriously, cut that 3"-6" in half and that's still more rain than we need around here.

It's going to be that tropical rain where you can get under a cell and it rains (sideways) like hell for hours. Probably some "training" as well...

gotta love the + too

back to dropping dookies in the trees 

 

 

I'll admit I had to look that one up. Sounds like you have some privacy away from the neighbors' prying eyes, lol. That's always a nice feature (for #1 anyway).

This year is the first time in about 10 years that I am getting some water in my basement. I channel as much

away from the foundation as possible but the ground cant hold anymore.

i think Glenn is going to be really overdone with that map. Locally 3-6" sure.. but widespread??? highly highly unlikely...no model shows anywhere near that. Even the 2-3" that widespread is incredibly unlikely. I'd cut those numbers by at least 1/2.  Mt. Holly would be sounding the alarms on a flood threat if 2-3" of rain widespread was expected and they are making it out to be a more localized flood thread under the heavier showers.

Sigh of relief that forecast precipitation amounts have been slashed and yes plenty of privacy, even a semi functional outhouse. Even working on plans for hot water, i have wifi and 1910 plumbing...

Interesting....sounds like a cool spot. Have you pictured it with 2 feet of snow (even though it doesn't sound like you'll be there this coming winter)?

I think we are going to see flash floods but I don't foresee the Schuylkillood or Delaware enter major flood Stage. But then again, I scheduled a tee time for Sunday at 2:00pm at Arrowhead golf course in Douglassville!

I don't know, it doesn't seem like pure rain of the past.. more acid or something. PH. I wonder if it's coming from a deeper south area, the Gulf, or what's going on. 

Volcanic rain the horror!
