Too Much of a Good Thing...

July 27th, 2009:

While I love the rain, I fear it is setting us up for a prolonged period of Flash Flooding.  Check out the rain totals from the past 24hours:

Many areas not listed also saw substantial rain and it only looks like it is going to get worse.  The ground is saturated and needs some time to dry out.  With copious moisture in place, and several disturbances moving through to touch off the showers and storms, it doesn't look to dry out anytime soon.  Beats talking about drought and fire though...lol.
