With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the and passing the area, it brought all sorts of extreme weather for this area and the entire region, really. Flooding all over the place and some tornadoes were the main features.
With the remnants of what was Hurricane Ida approaching the area then interacting with a cold front right in our area tomorrow and tomorrow night certainly look to be a mess. I don’t know if it will be right here In Mount Joy, but where everything set up, there will be a lot of rain.
Today it is a rainy day. My middle finger is a bit angry from curling my step grandson yesterday. I did a lighter WOD than I normally have because of that. When we went for a walk in the evening, I had to jump in the puddles because life’s too short to not have fun.
Back to this winter’s normal pattern again. We had yet another rainstorm. At least it’s fairly mild and not just 33 ° F and rain.
The year of 2018 was a year of major flooding here in Central PA and Especially Lancaster County.
We had a NICE MOISTURE rich storm that is causing snow in New England. If only it had been snow here. With my Davis Vantage Pro2 recording just over two inches of snow.
Tropical storm Hanna moved into the Carolinas last night and north, then northeast through Virginia and is now off the coast. It dumped heavy rains in some areas and in my back yard we received heavier rainfall than I had expected. I figure that was going to happen when I saw the radar this morning and felt the humidity. Dew point of 72 or 73 today made it feel like summer and not September.
Well I guess our storm shield has ended. We ended up having a pretty nice storm yesterday. Not severe but had some nice wind and heavy rain of course. The rain was not nearly as heavy as last week though. I only measured a quick .3 inches of rainfall. It did feature lots of cloud to ground lightning. Unfortunately for me most of the lightning was in a direction I couldn’t see from the porch but heard lots of fire calls on the scanner for lightning strikes.
It looks like we’ll be in for some heavy rain and minor river flooding. I got woken up last night by howling winds.
