On the second day without rain. It's been warm, but the mid Atlantic humidity is mellow today. Went to a job to layout piles. They've been set faaar back because of the rain. They had a 12" pump plus two 4" pumps dewatering the creek and the hole and can barely keep up. Last year, they got by with only the 12", and it was throttled way back.

I was also on a terrible property a couple days ago, that had a recently drilled well. It was capped, but the water so high, it was coming out of the top in a fairly heavy stream. The water table's high there anyway, and all the rain we've gotten has pushed it over.

Well, it did finally begin raining after 10:00 am and has been steady all day. A cold one though, in the 40's.  fire_smiley

We had a shower here sometime in the late morning. I came home to everything wet. Than another shower around 1pm than a more steady rain. That is good.
We had the 40's a few days ago. Warm here now.

Rain rain rain 3 inches in the last 2 days and a few more inches on the way here, places just a few miles from here had double that in an hours time. Flash flooding all over the area with lots of roads and buildings washed away. Not something we've seen around here it looks like things we only see on the news. Crazy crazy.

These are from Houghton Michigan the home of Michigan tech university and our closest "big" city. We travel there usually once a week for groceries and anything else we may need.

Wow, there must have been some rain in a real hurry. 3" doesn't seem like much otherwise. But 6" is sure a lot in a short time. Really put a hurt'in on that town.

Looking for some rain here tonight, 2" wouldn't hurt the ground none. But I don't think we are going to get that kind of rain.

Some areas recieved 7 to 9 inches in a few hours this morning. Put that on top of 3 inches Friday and saturday the ground just couldn't handle it. Some of the buildings destroyed today have stood for 150 years, it's really a shame. Highways are washed out and people are trapped in their homes.

Reminds me of the water off Katrina. We had a cold front that dropped 5" the day before Katrina dumped another 4". Everyone had indoor pools in their basements. I had 2" in the basement and ran it out with a sump pump. Then in January had 7" in 24 hours. Doh! My old farm house was over 120 years old with rock wall in basement.

Trouble with living in an area with steep hills isn't water in your basement it's water taking your basement out from under your house, and relocating your house a few blocks down.

Worst news the nws just issued a warning for upwards of 3 more inches with this next line of storms moving in.

Really is awful. Always see this kind of stuff on the news and think glad I don't live there... Now we live there...

Nothing you can do but pick up the pieces after its all said and done.

Yikes! Our son, daughter-in-law and grandaughter are vacationing in the Keweenaw with a jeep and pop-up camper. Last we heard from them they got a hotel room in Copper Harbor yesterday....nothing since. We're supposed to meet them at the Mouth of the Two Hearted River in a couple days, tent camping...may be a change in plans!  Saw videos of major infrastructure damage in Houghton, devastating!  Scott B.
