    Another 1.5" on top of the three months of rain we got last month. ;)

    And look at that .... more storms later today!

    [​IMG]

    The look ahead ... two days that could be sunny followed by 5 days of potential storms.

    A strange shower hitting one side of a 27 story building but no the other side. It did not extend accross the street on the shower side. I've seen the egde of a thunderstorm before but never so localized a shower.

    Yup, they have scheduled more storms with heavy rain for later today. I fully expect my phone to yell at me for a flash flood alert at some point. Storms "could" be stronger today...they were pretty "strong" yesterday so...

    OMG! I got one of those a couple of days ago. Sounded like a Nuclear Alert! When did Accuweather start doing that?
    Not a drop of rain in my area.

    I've gotten 3 of them in the last 2 weeks, we've had a lot of rain. Mine are from the EAS (emergency alert system), not my weather apps (but they send me little ! to be sure I'm on top of it :) )

    EEEEEH EEEEEH EEEEEH EEEEEH

    Thankfully mine have only been for flash flooding lately. The tornado ones are a little unnerving for sure, I've gotten only 2 of them since EAS was a thing. But still, those are scary!

    Ooh, a cooling trend-- down to double digits for the weekend only.

    Of course, I'll be out of town, but it's the thought that counts, right?

    Overcast and no wind. 73° with 87% humidity. This is not a typical Kansas day for August.

    Would you rather have 101°F with bicycle-riding witches flying past your window?

    Well, just got the precursor to the warning which will lead to the EEEEH EEEEH EEEEH. We are under a flash flood watch 'til midnight. No rain yet

    I just got home from mowing two huge estates. I did sweat. Not hot, just thick air.

    ^^^ Now that's interesting weather-wise.
    I thought thick air meant sweat?^^^

    So, growing up as an amphibian in Florida, sweating was just a thing my body generally didn't do much of. I mean, let's face it--when the humidity is usually 65% or above, sweat just does not cool you down much if at all, right?

    Now that I have been living in one desert or another for more than two decades, my body has once again learned how to do that whole sweat to cool the body thing.

    I can't stand the smell of my own sweat.

    Seriously, my laundry bill is skyrocketing as I try desperately to find a way to remove that godawful stench from my shirts... it's almost to the point where I just want to start buying cheap t-shirts and throw them out after one or two uses.

    Humidity is down. Temperatures in the 80° range but there's a price to pay in Boston. It will probably rain all next week. Kinda makes me miss Florida.

    I'm getting tired of hearing that flash flood warning klaxon.

    So far that mess has been missing by the smallest of margins...I'm OK with that. Stay in, pour a drink and watch it fall ;)
