October Discobs Thread

Recommended Posts

0.91" here with a little left to come, but with 2.70" for the month, unless something unexpected happens between now and next Thursday, this will be my first below normal month since we were in that big drought last winter.

 

eta: That was sarcasm.

Amounts seem pretty uniform around the area...

.88" here since yesterday afternoon.  During winter we would be thrilled with an areawide 6-12" but a bit disappointed that the model runs of the stalled low at the mouth of the Ches didnt happen.

Just cracked 10.0" here (Herndon VA).

Posting from the ark?

Just 0.50 here, a little wind and chilly. The 44.0 degree high is a new record 'cool max' for the date, beating 2005's 47.0 reading. That is the 2nd cool max of the month (22nd), first time that has happened in a good while.

Sorry about that. Weenie mode got carried away and changed my 1.36" total to a heavy wet paste.

Has dried out here, finally.  But not before I got to spend 2 hours in the rain aerating mine and my neighbors' yards.  What a mud-bog.  Hopefully, it'll dry out enough to salvage a fire-pit night.  Haven't measured yet, but certainly at least an inch out of this storm.

Eta:

1.2" event total.

Wonderful day here, 40's, breezy, cloudy with a few sprinkles from time to time. Only way to make it better would be for it to be 10 degrees colder with flurries instead of the sprinkles.
