Last night, for me, was the storm of the season. You get much wind? It prolly gusted to around 40-45 here for a bit

Can't attest to the wind, but honestly I was in a daze after being awakened by the lightning and thunder so maybe didn't notice.  The rain sounded very hard on the windows, and I briefly wondered if there was hail embedded in there.

Baker park in Frederick has some legitimate flooding. I’m here right now. Carroll creek has had enough.

Wasn't Baker park created to be flood runoff?  I thought that was its purpose, and it does that very well.

Is that where the covered bridge flooded out? I heard something on the news, but didn't quite pick up where it was.

No covered bridge in Baker Park. It is downtown Frederick, runs through the middle of the city.

No Baker park has always been here. But it used to flood regularly as Carroll Creek runs through it. The city many years ago after a big flood invested in a water diversion system. The creek has spill ways into underground tunnels that helps to carry flood waters away. The creek runs through and does not flood. Carrol Creek Linear Park is the other park it attaches to.

Mattie was right. I am a drama queen. :lol:

It was gusty and brought down some dead branches, and got me over the 1" mark. And here comes the next line. Rumbling.

Overall...isn't it kinda hard to get tornados in cities anyway? (buildings?)

St. Louis gets them on occasion, the most memorable in the past decade being the one in April 2011 that hit the airport and tore off a chunk of the main terminal's roof.  The Cardinals game had to be put on hold in order to shelter-in-place everyone in Busch Stadium.

I witnessed the Edmonton EF4 of 1987.

May have been Loys Station Covered Bridge east of Thurmont.

Yep, we have been relatively spared from Easton to Greensboro. 0.7" for the day.
