We have had over 9" since Saturday morning. Remains of Gordon, I believe. We may get some of Flo later this week. Been one of the worst crop years, because everything is TOO wet. It is one of the wettest summers we have ever had. Everything is getting stuck. Feels like we own a mud farm.

I just was talking to the neighbor next door. On the soil here, you cannot get off gravel. It will be a couple weeks before anyone can get on a field. Furthermore, we are approaching those months when the ground just never dries until spring. I have great grass this fall but I notice the cows are cutting up the ground grazing on it. That don't usually happen here until Thanksgiving. I am hoping it stays dry for a month.

Gonna get worse I suspect. This storm is of significant size, enough that even if it does quickly veer NE, Ky, Tenn, North Ga, the Virginias,and other points just to the north are all going to get a lot of rain, and even a LOT of rain.
Sounds like Flo will be a rainmaker for sure.

Florence is likely to make landfall on Thursday evening or Friday morning on the coast of North Carolina or South Carolina, and the odds continue to increase that Florence will stall on Friday and meander near or over the coast for several days, making the hurricane a devastating rainfall and coastal flooding threat...............
Florence: an extreme rainfall threat
Our top five models all agree that the trough of low pressure that was expected to turn the hurricane to the north late this week will be too weak to do so, as a strong ridge of high pressure builds over the Mid-Atlantic. This “blocking ridge” is likely to block Florence’s forward progress. Florence is expected to stall and wander near or over the coast for as many as four days, potentially becoming the “Harvey of the East Coast”, dumping prodigious amounts of rain. If a significant portion of the storm’s circulation remains over water, as occurred last year with Hurricane Harvey’s stall over Southeast Texas—or even if Florence were to move into the higher terrain of western North Carolina and then stall—the rain from Florence may break all-time state records for rainfall from a hurricane or tropical storm. North Carolina’s state rainfall record from a hurricane is 24.06” from Hurricane Floyd of 1999, South Carolina’s is 18.51” from Tropical Storm Jerry of 1995, and Virginia’s is 27.00” from Hurricane Camille of 1969. There is also the danger that Florence could make landfall, then emerge back over water and re-intensify, increasing its rainfall potential.

Not good. They are saying 3 to 5 inches of it stays on track. We sure don't need it. Lots of hay is going to be lost.

I'm going to have to keep an eye on Issac and also, this as yet un-named little jewel..


Showers and thunderstorms over the northwestern Caribbean Sea,
western Cuba, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico are associated
with a surface trough and are showing some signs of organization.
This system is forecast to move slowly northwestward across the
Yucatan Peninsula on Tuesday with limited development. Upper-level
winds are forecast to become more conducive for development later in
the week, and a tropical depression could form on Thursday or Friday
while the disturbance moves across the western Gulf of Mexico.
Interests across northeastern Mexico and the coast of Texas and
Louisiana should monitor the progress of this system. Regardless of
development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely over western
Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula through Tuesday.

Dad told a lot of stories about the 1937 floods on the Ohio River. He was 16. He watched hogs, cows, chickens, cars, houses, etc floating down the river.

We haven't had as much as sky yet but are starting to get heavy bands now. But we had rain off and on for over a week now and everything is saturated. Supposed to get nasty the next 2 days. Real bad in NC and SC flooding etc.

If there was a way I would lasso it and bring it south to you and out to the dry parts of Texas. We have had an exceptionally wet year overall. About twice the normal rainfall totals and this rain will really boost it up. I just hope we don't have the snow equivalent this winter.....
