I hust went out to collect the garden waste bin (first collection since lockdown today)... and on my way back to the front door was "assailed" by the heavy scent of jasmine. It was like walking through a tart's boudoir (allegedly).

The forecast was calling for batwing. It's not quite there yet.

Yesterday we had a derecho, but our winds and rain (0.5" or 12mm) were not excessive.

Today we have had several thunderstorms and lots of rain with more to come, the cat is not impressed with it at all.

Just a few days into hurricane season and we have a named storm coming into the gulf. We should know by the weekend if it will impact Texas. Right now it is projected to hit the East Texas coast and Louisiana so we may be ok

Cold and overcast. Windy with showers (but not enough rain to actually help with the garden).

Back to normal for a UK summer......

Keep safe.
I'm going to need to dig out my wellies if it's rain keeps up much longer. It started at half two Friday afternoon and is still going at 11am Saturday with no let up for the next 24 hours. It's not a catastrophic type rain but it's a bit early in the rainy season to have two inches of standing water in the yard.
Thursday afternoon I wondered if I was going to be that idiot who gets his truck swamped in 18 inches of standing water when I took a break from the jobsite, just as the deluge started, to go get some stuff from the workshop and returned an hour later in those shitty zero visibility rain conditions that is a summer speciality down here. A hundred yards from the jobsite and I realised as I turned the corner that the continual 3" of standing water on the road had become 18" and I couldn't tell if it was going to get much deeper. Luckily it didn't but I was starting to wish I was back in a Landy with a snorkel exhaust system.

Otherwise, it's 79F and humid as hell so today I'm going to pretend that I'm Battery Sargeant Major Tudor Bryn Williams.

You don't mess around with lightning in this country. This is the Washington monument, in DC, last night.




Catch it live here.

Still looking ok for us but you know those storms, a little turn to the left and a big uh ho!!
We were like you are now last week. Total soggy season. The back yard was a lake for a few days which then meant the mosquito swarm

Remember: Turn around, don't drown!

I quite agree, this was slightly different in that it was nowhere near flowing water and just the low point on a minor road junction. The 3" standing water had been like that for over a mile and wasn't true standing water, it had been there less than an hour and was gone an hour later, it's quite common round here to flood like that on a daily basis when it rains. Rising rivers and coastal flooding are a totally different ballgame. I wouldn't want to be on foot near the storm drains when it's like that, mind.
Edit: And make that 30 hours of near continual rain now.

Crap. The continual rainfall are our nightmares. The bayou's here flood so quickly.
Is Christobel going to impact you as well on Sunday/Monday?
