Sat at 1:00 pm I dumped 1.6" of rain from both gauges. Today we are already above 4" of rain as of 10:15am.. for total so far of 5.6" in past two days.
That is a lot of rain .. normally this much rain only comes with a tropical system.



Sat. April 28, 2012:
It's raining, it's pouring.
The old man is snoring.
He went to bed and he bumped his head
and he couldn't wake up in the morning.



WOW here in SE Florida looks like another very wet weekend. Did the rainy season arrive a little early this year?


It is that time again for my March of Dimes, March for Babies fundraiser for all our Babies.

Our joint goal is again $1,000 which we have raised the last two years with alot of your help.
But not sure we will get that far this year.

So many of you have helped out in the past and
I thank you so much. If anyone can help it will be appreciated. No donation is too small to be helpful.

I have been a March of Dimes Mother since Greg was born premature back in 1975.
3 of our 5 grandchildren were March of Dimes Babies and the one coming this summer could also
need this organization but we hope not. So once again, I will walk/run for our Babies.




So many of you are helping us again this year and it is so appreciated!!!
You know who you are and so do I. Thank you all so much!!!

Hi Gams,

I am pleased you are back with us, albeit in IE and not Chrome!
Just one silly question - when did you do the last manual scan of your computer with the virus checker. I know what you are like about your computer virus. lol


Back to work today, so you should be able to check in:)

Hope the kitchen is still progressing well!

Guess what, I just tried IE instead of Chrome and I am on my blog!!!

Oh my goodness..

Hi everyone.. I've missed you all!!!

It must be a Google Chrome thing???

But I did try to get on yesterday via IE and it still did not work..

I have to do some things but will be back later.

Oh yes, my neighborhood received a total of 7.25" of rain on Sat, Sun, and Mon!

I think that should last awhile!!!

Enjoy your day.. bbl..

I cannot believe I am on and I just sent WU Tech Support another Ticket!!!

Happy Wednesday!

Is anyone else getting an error about half the time on Gamma's blog?

"Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error"

I wonder if it's related to her problem.

Well, we have some canals, and an ocean..
Normally it just kinds seeps into the ground and drains into aquifers and such. But we're pretty saturated from the weekend, so it's going to start piling up. I have some areas in my yard showing puddles, and the lake in my back yard is almost as high as I've ever seen it.

Lucky for me, I'm on high ground in my cul-de-sac. It has to get a lot worse for me to have an issue.

Hi All,

Message from Gamma, via Facebook:
Hi Jeff, I see you found me on WU at Sandi's blog.. when I am not logged in I can see my blog just not post on it..if you get a chance can you leave a message on my blog that I am "banned" from my own blog for some reason, under both my handles... Have tickets open with WU admin but they have not been able to fix the problem..

So..we need to keep this thing going while our fearless leader if banned!

The building next to me lost power this afternoon - according to FPL's web site, a few hundred people in Sunrise had that happen. Lucky it didn't hit my building!

-Jeff

11:40 this morning..lull in the office. Look outside and see that it isn't raining. I made an executive decision to go get take-out for lunch. (Mmm...Salad..)
Got back to the office just as it started to rain again. And it's pouring now.

Radar shows lots of green out east, some yellow mixed in out west, and lots of yellow with some red off the coast. And the ground is already saturated. I hope there isn't much flooding.

Sunny and dry today, about 75 degrees.

Jeff, it has let up a little here in the past few hours.. only about 1/2" the past few hours..where earlier we were getting 1/2" every 30 mins.

We are getting ready to walk down to neighbor's house for dinner so hope it does not come another downpour until we are safely home later.

Sandi, wow that is some flooding.. not that bad here here.. yet... in the past few hours the heavy rain has let up a little so the streets had time to drain off some.. not flooded now like they were earlier..
I'll bet the canals are really high if not out of their banks.

There is a lot going on down in the Florida Straits that may or maynot bring a lot more rain...but we have alot of rain in our forecast for the next 7 days.

got to go for now.. enjoy your evening.

Yup - I think Scott's suggestion about an ARK is a good idea.

We are not too bad here, some flooding but not too much, but other areas of the country are much worse. I found this photo on Flickr. York is on flood alert - the river is 10 foot above normal and is expected to rise overnight after today's heavy rain!

Just back from my weekly lunch out east. The main streets aren't too bad. It's actually not raining at the house right now, but I don't think that's going to last. There's a ton of stuff just south and east of us.
I was supposed to run another errand this afternoon, but I'm going to cancel it and deal with it after work tomorrow.

As I sit on my balcony again tonight it is a little cooler, about 68 (20C). But this time there is a thunderstorm developing nearby and the lightning and thunder are becoming more frequent. Kind of cool to watch the storm develop in place (doesn't seem to be moving) as opposed to it just moving over you and passing by.

Good news is Tuesday is a German holiday (May Day) and most Germans will be off tomorrow also. Translation: No traffic! Unfortunately I must go in as I am a U.S. government employee.

May Day is observed in most of the world, just not the U.S.

Stay dry. First downdrafts from the storm just hit me. Better go in.

Sandi, LT and Jeff, My rain gauge is now over 3" for just this morning.. that is insane...

Jeff, from what I hear it is not going to stop at all today... and will continue thru Thur?

We are going to flood really bad if it keeps up at this pace...

LT, glad your Florida vacation was a good one... and that your wife has now gotten the surgery she needed. happy all this rain did not come until your vacation was over.. however it did rain last Saturday.
Thanks for stopping by.

Sandi, weather is fickled ... glad you are getting rain if you need it... we got plenty last weekend to last us a few weeks...when it all comes at once not so good.
if it keeps this up all day we will need that boat I have in the back yard to get in and out of the neighborhood. I am so excited about dinner at my neighbor's house.. it was her daughter's wedding we went to on March 31st. She is a really good Italian cook.. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.


I cannot believe who quickly that rain gauge is filling up... this is getting serious now.

It's just POURING out there.
We're Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach are under a flood watch.

I spent yesterday at a friend's house near the beach, and we got to see a good bit of the show. Most of the stunt plane stuff was focused at center stage, and we couldn't see that. But all the fighter jets and bombers came by.

According to channel 10 news, today's show is cancelled due to weather. Glad I got to see it when I did.

I think I'm going to take your advice and make it a mostly indoor day.

Hi Gamma, had a wonderful time in FLA. Stayed in Delrey, made a trip to Palm Beach to walk on Worth Ave., and went down as far South to the Boca area to visit my wife's 94 year old aunt. and take her out to dinner at Carabas. She is at an assisted living facility at 94th ST. and Powerline RD. The weather was good for most of our stay. My wife wasn't feeling that great due to her back problem, but that was taken care of last Tues., 2 days after we returned North, She had a back operation, an internal cyst was growing near her spinal column causing pain and it was removed. She feels much better now. "Enjoy" your rain! Take care, LT

hi Gams - Yes it is raining and pouring here too!

After the warmest March on record we went to the wettest and coldest April on record!!!!
But we need the rain - although it has been too much, too soon, and it is not soaking in, but flooding everywhere! There are over 70 flood warnings in place!

Enjoy your Italian dinner - it is good to have great neighbour who take pity on you when yo have no kitchen!

Good morning everyone and Guess What??


It's Raining, It's Pouring!!!!!

AGAIN..another 60% chance of rain again today and I think we are already close to another inch this morning.
I dumped 1.6" of rain yesterday at 1pm.
I don't know how much rain it takes to move that moisture map because Broward County should be GREEN by now not just yellow.

Sure wish some of this rain would work its way up the state where it is really needed.

We have a big chance of rain in Broward County for the next 7 days.... Yuck!


Today I hope to get some cleaning done.. there is dust everywhere...and one of our neighbors, who makes wonderful Italian (she is very Italian) invited us over for dinner this afternoon. That will be great.. I cannot wait to dig into her pasta and meatballs!

So obviously it is not an outside day so cleaning inside will be the plan.

You enjoy your day.

Good morning Shore, After I saw that I was also a little taken back. All politicians lie; they cannot help it. They promise more than they can deliver.
It is going to be a sad situation if things don't change in November. I am thinking about doing the same thing just because I don't like the fact of the administration calling out private citizens for supporting his opposition. Good to have you stop by.

Progress in the kitchen, rain, and a good red - what could be better?

I saw your comments over at Jer's. I'm staying out of there when that "your guy's a worse liar than my guy" stuff starts, but I'll tell you this. The first thing I did when I read elsewhere about contributors to Romney getting leaned on was send off a check. You can bet it wasn't anything as big as those others, but the more $5 and $10 contributions there are, the better. I suspect that if President Obama is re-elected, the biggest divide in the country will be between those who are surprised by the things he does, and those who saw it coming. ;)

We're ready for a little more rain ourselves. Things are really drying out, especially with all the wind we've had. It would be nice for your airshow to be able to go on with no problems, though - what will be, will be!

Hi Patti,

Can you believe we hit 86 degrees today? Not normal for Germany in April. Sunny all day and now as the sun sets I am sitting on my balcony typing this (about 75 now), with a beer, of course. Haven't had one for months. Just two days ago it was only 50 degrees daytime. Unfortunately midweek it will be back to 50's and rain. No warmth ever lasts long here!

Enjoy your rain and new kitchen.

just checked 7 day forcaste. Broward County has a high chance of rain everyday this weekend and next week thru next weekend.
Next Sunday is the first day coming up without rain in the forecaste. And most days it is 50% or higher chance of rain..

I do believe the rainy season has arrived...
we will all be ducks soon...

WOW that sounds interesting to see a helicopter doing those stunts..

I don't see how they are going to do this show today and tomorrow with the amount of rain still to come. Maybe we will get lucky and it will go around us...
I know central and north Florida need rain badly.

Thanks for stopping by.. enjoy your day off!

It sure is wet out there! I hope it clears up for the air show..but I'm glad I got to see all the practice runs yesterday.

The Sun-Sentinel said the beach was packed for the rehearsal. I don't know where they were..but just south on A1A outside the 'official' show area, it wasn't any more crowded than a normal weekday.

I did see something that I don't remember from any past shows..they had a stunk helicopter! It was doing barrel rolls and loops. That's not even possible..but I saw it. It was one of the highlights for me.


Enjoy your day indoors..it's a good place to be today. I bet that coffee feels real good. :)
