    About 1.5" for the day. Crazy this system dropped that much in a day and more to come.

    OMGoodness ... There's this big half orb, yellow, directly overhead; looks like something seen at Sam's Club in the cheese department; and a big bright dot in the far western sky ... the sky is black and not grey reflective; any ideas on what this apparition might be?

    In SAV, we've had some rain most days since the prior gulf dist brought in moisture, which is a good thing since we're I think still in a drought thanks to the very dry Jan-March. Today's rain was all in the morning oddly enough.

    I'm really getting tired of managing to get hit by late night thunderstorms this year. This is the 3rd one.

    About to get stormed on again. Going to see today if I can wait out the storms and walk later, even though it hasn't been bad outside.

    It's amazing the difference over a relatively short distance, you're having to water your grass and I can't keep up with cutting mine.

    Now over 7 inches of rain since May 14th with 0.9" yesterday. Real chance at clearing 10 inches in a short time period.

    So, Larry..I'm up to 6 inches for the week, and have a trop storm coming...so say it gives me another 6 inches...am I guaranteed nothing but 70's and 80's for the rest of the summer like the last Alberto provided? I'm really looking forward to a summer with temps no higher than 87, lol. I think that's fair, since I lost most of my winter. Should I bet money on it? And still no mosquitoes. Should I make a worlds coming to an end sign? Or just plan on enjoying mosquito free 70's and 80's until Oct, lol, which would make this the best summer ever! Well, since 74 anyway. I mean Alberto really did take the heat away from early July on. I can't find records back that far for here, but I bet if there was a stray ninety, there weren't but one or two. It was amazingly non hot for the rest of the summer after all that rain from td Alberto.

    Surf is picking up quite a bit here on Miramar Beach. Overcast but bright enough for some beach time before the deluge.
