Psych! We got a nice little shower tonight. Right after I remembered to water my flowers for the first Wednesday (or Saturday) in months. If they let us wash our cars, I bet we'd get lots of rain.

I almost got washed off the road driving to Raleigh tonight. Several people stopped and polled off on I-40. On the way back, the rain seemed to have moved from Wake to Durham County, and I passed 2 wrecks. I know this is all just anecdotal, but the rain *was* really bad. Didn't look like squat on the radar later.

if you watched the doppler during the storm last night, it was real interesting, as it came up from the east.it almost looked like it was attached to TS Fay, as it was moving parallel with the northern bands of the storm, although a good 400 miles away.

I was watering my tomato plants right before that storm rolled through.barry - I was wondering the same thing. The counter-clockwise movement on the radar made me think we were getting the extreme outer bands of Fay.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any of that rain fell in either of our reservoirs. Inflows are basically unchanged. I had watered my tomatoes earlier in the evening as well. The only good news, i guess, is that i probably won't need to water on Saturday, and the rain barrels are definitely full again.This photo, taken about 10 hours ago, lends some credence to the notion that the rain last night was related to TS Fay.

There's a big high pressure system north and east of us which is making the flow come from the SE. Since this wasn't related to a front, the storms track the flow.

Since 1949, Durhamites have slept soundly, secure in the knowledge that, in our town, erection can be depended upon. Now, thanks to the power of the internets, we can spread that security all over the world.
For such an enlightened, tolerant guy, I sure get pissed off easy.
