Well, my alert on my phone went off for thunderstorm watch and flash flood watch.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...

- Widespread thunderstorms capable of producing rain rates in

excess of 2 inches per hour are expected to develop between

late afternoon and early evening today, and will expand in

coverage as they spread south during the evening and

overnight hours. In addition to very high instantaneous rain

rates, multiple rounds of thunderstorms are likely to move

over the same areas repeatedly across localized areas.

Widespread rain amounts of 1 to 3 inches are expected, with

locally higher amounts between 3 and 6 inches possible as

well. While the flash flooding threat may be localized and

conditional, the threat may be locally higher in areas that

have received copious rainfall in recent days.
You own a boat?😳 keep a careful eye on things..

No boat and the watch has turned into warnings. Although, I keep reminding myself to be thankful for the rain because so many are lacking.

I did harvest lots of tomatoes before it started raining this afternoon figuring if the forecast holds, we would get a lot of them to rupture due to so much moisture.

Little over two inches of rain last night, some light showers this morning. Thankfully, no flash flooding in our area.

After two months of nothing but high temps I would settle for spit. Congrats to those getting it and prayers for those getting too much.

I mowed yesterday afternoon because I was on the edge of the warning area (next county south was in it) but no rain here besides the badly needed 1.1" two days earlier. The ground still has large cracks because of the dry summer that the rain didn't phase.

With this dry weather, my new Kubota F2690 may get here before I have to mow again with my Deere 955 :)

At least between decent moisture down deep and a bit of watering, the peaches have done well. This winter the trees will get a severe pruning after I let them grow out from the ice storm damage several years ago. My daughter has gone from picking to making preserves this morning and we are awaiting the arrival of a hand crank vintage ice cream freezer I bought on ebay to replace the Chinese electric garbage that I bought a few years ago so we can turn some into peach ice cream.
