Man oh man!

We sure got some rain around DC. All told, about 8 inches in a 24 hr period.

Yesterday we had a line of T-storms that didn't just cross over, but ran the line along through the area. It was like a long line that ran sw to ne and was heading ne. The same areas got the entire line. We had a 9 hr thunderstorm last night that dumped the majority of the rain.

Randy, I know you got smacked hard too....

Dadburn roof developed a leak, old basement casement window leaked like a sive, poured down the wall....

Got to go outside and take care of the window wells today, dig 'em out, put gravel in, etc.... Gotta' seal the dern window shut too and it's that old steel framework. Yuck!

Oh well, more storms on the radar, I'd better get busy....

Good luck. I've been there too. I had my whole living room flood one time and it took me hours to get the water out using a rug shampooer.

Well, I lost my back yard, mud everywhere, other than that, I don't know. I've been home since yesterday at 5pm. Sheesh, here comes another heavy band..... Not bad inside, only have 3 gallons in the wet vac in the basement...

Guess I can't go out and play tonight....

Yeah, lots of flooding according to the news...

Mudslide closed down the beltway, subway stopped and so did Amtrak.

Yeah, I like that site but the radar is somewhat old, I think Accuweather provides it. I always stick with the local tv station radar pages for current stuff.

Its been bad here in Manassas too. My parents had 3 trees uprooted in thier back yard which knocked down another 3 trees so they lost 6 in all. What a mess to clean up. My backyard is a literal swamp, dogs are tracking mud everywhere, kids are cooped up in the house....will it ever stop? Last I heard they are calling for this until the end of the week.

The first pic is in front of the house awhile after it stopped raining.

Second is the bridge across the LITTLE creek down the street.

It started pouring again and the creek swelled up.

Next pic on far right is the SAME BRIDGE 10 minutes after the first pic of it. Man, it comes up fast.

Next one, just a "new" waterfall that wasn't there before.

Last one, this WAS a small creek about 5 foot across and 4 inches deep. It also spreads out to the right another 30 feet.

The water was probably 5 foot deep and was running at least 30 MPH!!!!!

Yeah, we keep getting those bands that flow along a path instead of across it. The count as of a hour ago was 24 inches. Basement flooded 4 times today, thank goodness for wet vacs and an outside stairwell drain to dump it in!
