RAIN RAIN RAIN










We were awakened at 1:30am by REALLY loud thunder and I checked the radar.  The red dot is our house in town.  It looked like it was about to calm down but only for a bit as the next line was a few hours away.  We got a few hours of quiet sleep.












Here is it about eight hours later,  about the time we got up (yeah, we slept in) another line had moved through about 6am, but of course there was still even more coming....












And here it is still later, seemingly no end in sight.  They have slowed and even though the whole line is moving East, it's now sort of moving to up from the Southwest at the same time, they call this "training"...We've now come up on about 24 hours of rain.  We've had enough breaks in the lines of storms that there has not been any flooding, but we're still closing in on 3" of rain so far...

How come you are having such a rainy year? Makes no sense. Here it is strangely warm for December. Very spooky and I thought my grandchildren would be seeing the climate drastically change not me.

We got 2 inches and lots of wind. All this while I was setting up and then hosting our Family Christmas at a local hall. And I got drenched on a supply run to Walmart!

1st Man,

I hope everything is you and 2nd Man are fine and you have no flooding or damage.

It was very wet. Not as wet as we HAVE been this year, but pretty wet for the last few weeks anyway.

Thank you it's rained so much this year I long for the clear pretty days.

IT's been CRAZY hasn't it. They said it's one of our wettest on record (and there were no tropical storms or hurricanes to inflate the rainfall totals). I truly believe the weather is screwed up. I know "global warming" is controversial but I think when people use the words "climate change" it's much more understandable. The climate everywhere is indeed changing....

We didn't have the wind, thankfully (though up in Willis they had a F2 tornado). Sorry about your Christmas event....hope y'all had fun!!!

Thank you, it's all good, thankfully it was a steady rain, not a monsoon flood. THIS time anyway, ha. Thanks for thinking of us!!!
