Not sure I can remember 3 days in a row of almost constant rain

Still some rain falling this morning. Over 1.5" since Friday night.

So looking forward to a week of dryness. Looks like a decent period of wind for later today through tomorrow too. Bring it.

6z GFS is dry for the next 2 weeks. I don’t hate that.

Derechos are taking SlimFAST? :P

It did get dark about an hour ago, saw that really skinny line to the south and just like late spring when we're stuck at 55 and fog and southern MD is in the 80s getting severe, it's just misty showers and a few breezes not even enough to blow anything around.

The severe event of the year. I wonder what 2022s severe weather season will bring. :P

48/38 at IAD. It's getting windier.

Couple of gusts in the last few minutes. Though I have no doubt it will increase. We do well with wind.... except in the summer when it's hot and humid. Then there is not a breeze to be found. I have really enjoyed the last three days of what seems to be non-stop rain (sarcasm). Cold rain is something we excel at as well. Hard to imagine three days of snow that isn't pixie dust.

The entire winter has been a disaster here in Pasadena. All I've had is a slop mess and piles of puddles this year. I've never heard my sump pump run so frequently in the 15 years I have been in this particular house. Like 5 minute intervals.
