A lot of rain today, and I mean A LOT

They (weather people) projected 4-5 inches.  It's been raining almost nonstop all day so far.  SW MI.

WOW!  Better than snow though!  We're getting showers tomorrow (MA).  Stay dry!

@qualitygal They've already canceled the homecoming tailgate parties for WMU's football game. I'd be really suprised if that game goes on as planned with thunderstorms rolling thru.

My friend in Central California would love some of that rain. Everything seems out of balance...rain where it isn’t needed, heat where it should be cool, fires out of control, hurricanes wreaking havoc. I may get zapped but climate change is real.

Flash thunderstorms this afternoon in central Midwest. Left as quickly as it came. 83 degrees before the storm. Dear Universe - Please don't let the Irish Festival be rained out tomorrow!

Been raining most all day of every day for the last 2 weeks. Not a nice rain, but the hard roof banging type of rain. Haven't been able to mow our acreage and it is getting pretty tall and thick. 

 

Flood warnings for those a few miles East of us as they are right on the Missouri River that separates us from Iowa. Couple years back Interstate 29 was under water for miles and is still under repair.

 

Too much water for me, but our home is all uphill from the Mighty Mo, whole city would be under water if it ever made it to our place.

 

All day? I'll take that any day in a trade.

@qualitygal

That rain is to head towards southern West Virginia by late tomorrow, and we are ready for a good wet down.

Yes! Western suburbs of Chicago, 6" and rain continues through early morning. Flash flood warnings are out. I do wish California had this to put out the flames.
