Greg, that looks like a soaker, for sure!  They've been predicting all week that we're gonna get washed away down here...and we've seen very little rain...plenty of blustery wind and gray skies, but little rain.  Looking at the radar today there was the small system over in Georgia that was mostly headed north and the system over in Mississippie that is/was headed your way....we were in between and have only got a light misting.  We've got another 50% predicted for tomorrow...it'll probably rain and keep me from mowing the grass when I have the time.

Don't forget to put on your high-water britches...

Kinda weird to see the creek flowing backwards as the river level rises.

This morning I turned in 2.75 inches for the past 24 hours to CoCoRAHs.  Some stations south of me turned in 3.40 inches.  I'm sure there will be higher totals from around the region.   A three-day total will be interesting, too.  Maybe I'll Google plans for building an Ark!   #-o

Hope all that water doesn't cause the rock/mud-slide problem like you had before.

3.28" so far, the ULL is over AL now and showers are breaking out ahead of that. Even hail accumulation?

3.78 in since 7:00 am Sat morning.

That upper level low that's churning across the south could be a nasty troublemaker.
