Holy Crap! I can't believe I forgot we started a new month yesterday. That fact slipped my mind completely. I even forgot to flip my Red Hot calendar over to meet the new ginger. Just where was my mind? Well, probably thinking up the rain. Remember when I said Ida was forecasted to pass us to our south? Wrong. That bitch changed her mind and went right over top of us. While doing so, she dropped a lot of torrential rain. A lot. Now I know some of you are wondering just how much a lot of rain is, so I'll tell you. Here in Central PA we received between 6 and 7 inches (152 - 178 mm). I also suspect there are those of you out there thinking to yourselves "between 6 and 7 is about average." Perhaps if your measuring bananas, but when it comes to rain, those figures are humongous. Believe me, I know. I came home from work to find 3 inches of water in my basement.
For those of you who might have difficult imagining between 6 and 7 inches (152 - 178) here are some shots from Central PA.
