If I ever get even slightly excited for an upcoming weather event, please troll the crapola out of me and laugh me out of the thread.  What a bust of an event this was, especially for a 10% TOR and 45% WND.

I've seen widespread severe twice in the 41 years of my life in this area. It happens less the 25" snowstorms.

Lots of branches down here and 2 power outages overnight. Heard a big thud in the middle of the night so I expect to see a tree or part of a tree down in the woods fairly close to the house.

1.1” for the entire storm starting Wednesday. Last night from 930-11pm was legit. House felt like it was lifting off. 

Around 6” for October. Quite a reversal in the last few weeks.

Incredible winds last night estimate near 50 plus near midnight, many limbs down . 

Huge area under a freeze warning from Mount Holly. 

I put the hoses and sprinklers away, debating whether to cover the annuals, but the mums should still be OK I imagine.

Was not the greatest weather event ever, but didn't think it was as disappointing as some think, especially for basically freaking November. Had very heavy rain for an hour or two getting slammed into the house by some pretty good wind.

2.04" from the storm, and 8.50" for October.  I even had a little water in the basement this morning. 

it was raining pretty heavily 9pm on last night, sump pump in the basement was running non-stop, which it doesn't do very often (at least it worked!)

hope the water didn't damage anything in your basement!

Man, I don't know where you guys live for last night but it got really nasty just north of Baltimore. Started around 10 PM, absolutely poured until about 11, then off and on bursts of heavy rain until about midnight. Serious flash flooding on the roads, nearly impossible to see while driving. I honestly thought it was going to be disappointing but it proved me wrong!

Thanks, and no damage.  It's an old house that had a french drain put in around the interior walls before I moved in about 15 years ago.  When it's raining really hard like last night, a little bit of water can miss the corrugated plastic of the french drain and make a small puddle.  My sump pump will be working overtime for a few days.

No big deal, and I know better than to keep anything important down there.

My numbers for the month of October 2019...

Total rainfall was 6.10 inches vs a normal of 2.70 inches, a +3.40 above normal and it slides into 3rd place behind 2017's 8.31 and 2006's 7.34 inch totals. Greatest rainfall was on the 1st with 1.16 inches falling. There were 14 days with measurable, one day with a T and 16 dry days. There was no snowfall for the month vs a normal of 0.6 inches. The averaged high temp was 68.6 degrees vs a normal of 67.8 degrees, a +0.8 above normal. The hottest day was the 4th at 93.3, we will discuss this more  in the summary. The averaged low was 46.8 degrees vs a normal of 40.8 degrees, a + 6.0 degrees and average. The coolest day was the 24th and 25th with matching 31.8 degree lows. The overall average temp for the month was 57.7 degrees vs a normal of 54.3 degrees, a +3.4 degrees above average. Highest wind recorded was 43 mph on the 1st. There were several records set during the month, first the daily highs. New set on 2nd (88.8), 3rd (90.4) and 4th (93.3). Two consecutive new monthly record highs were set on the 3rd (90.4), only to have the 4th shatter it with a 93.3 degree reading, which is also the highest temp recorded at my site this year....crazy! I had one (1) +90 degree day in October prior to this event ever in my 40 years of record keeping, a 90.1 degree reading.
