Lol.  I'm in Maine, so I dont care.... but 0.09" today back home.  

Temp this morning in Rangeley was 47F.  Yesterday was 72, sparkling blue skies, and not a trace of humidity.  It was like mid october back home.  This place is magnificent.

The tipping bucket couldn’t keep up.  3.97” on the VP2 vs 4.27” actual in the CoCoRaHS gauge.

I think it is safe to put this event second behind TS Lee for an intensity/duration combo since 2009 for me.

This is the 3rd time Frederick has had 5"+ rainstorm since 2015. The other 2 were.

9/29/2015

5/16/2018

Here's a shot of the flood control system doing a pretty good job keeping up with the runoff and limiting the scope of the damage.

2.9" in West End/downtown DC - most of that in about 45min.  Got caught running in it - was some of the heaviest rain I've ever been in.

Wow, pretty darned good when you are fringed by the storms and still get 3.07" for the day and the vast majority was in 90 minutes. The Cameron Run roaring beside and under the Beltway was extremely impressive, I found out that it had dropped almost 2 feet from it's peak, when I passed through.

A little late, but....    Our tally was 3.39" in a little over an hour NW of Vienna.  Lawyers Road was closed in both directions from our house (our driveway is on Lawyers), leaving only one route out via a nearby sub-division.  This happens a couple times a year or so on average on tributaries of Difficult Run.  The high water mark left by the mud on Lawyers was a new max.

Do a Bobo "Finding Bigfoot" call and see if you get a response or wood knock back.

Double super impressive (radar is in Twitter link)

Yesterday's high-precipitation supercell as seen by NWS radar between 3am and 2pm Monday traversing MD/DC/and northern VA. As shown on previous tweets, the highest rain totals of 3-6" were in a band only about 15 miles wide, but extended in a path more than 100 miles long.

Just visited there in late June. Doesn't take long to fall in love with this place. Was nice to revisit spring for a second time.

Wow,  went to the store and encountered an incredible thunderstorm,  the most intense rainfall I have seen in years. 

Looks like over 1.50 inches here.  Flooding on roads and vivid CTG strikes. 

Believe it is headed NE and carries a STW with it. 

There goes the garden. but really incredible to see and dark as night too! 

Also this would not send because of various FIOS issues here, and power outages

Lol.  No dice.

Sorry. Didnt see where you are. That picture reminds me a little bit of the Canadian Yukon with smaller mountains. I was there in May and it was simply stunning.
