    The good news is that according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, today was the last day of the Dog Days of Summer.

    Pretty funny that they issued a Flash Flood Watch today and in the watch area virtually no rain. The rain all fell east of the watch area. Makes sense.

    Yeah. According to weather.com there's about a 60% chance of rain here almost every day for the next 2 weeks. Never seen anything like this in my life. I'm pretty confident there will be a torrential downpour at the exact same time as the Eclipse !

    I've always loved tropical storms actually and I'm sure I can attribute some of that to enduring countless hours of my dad recounting his surviving the eye of Hurricane Hazel! Lol not to mention as a naive teenager waking up the morning that Hurricane Hugo was forecast to come through and I was disappointed it went west of us... Phil don't even comment haha

    Me too. After about mid July, I start growing sick of this same old pattern. September can't get here soon enough. Yes, September can be hot too, but at least then we're not dealing with dew points pushing 80 LOL

    I think about the only thing that keeps me from totally despising Summer is being able to go swimming.

    Meh, Hugo basically went right over me inland, just to the west of CLT at the time. Tons of damage, no power for 10 days, but tropical weather , hurricanes, and such, are boring, IMO . Id rather track a 10 day flurry threat, than an impending cat 5 US land falling hurricane, but to each their own.

    To me, the excitement is with both tropical systems (no comment Phil lol :p) and winter weather of all kinds as well as cold. I don't like having severe weather and tornadoes because I don't want to clean up after them if they hit hard. Tropical systems are something that can affect a large area and seeing them hitting land isn't good unless they are weak depressions. It is in some ways more interesting because if you get a storm chance, it has a higher chance of developing than a winter storm, which 70% are fantasy, so it just gets frustrating. Nobody wants a hurricane, unless it is a hard hooking one OTS.

    I lover cutting grass after the first good cold front. The warm sunshine and the cool breeze with temps in the low 70s is amazing.
