    I don't even want to look at the rain gauge when it's done. Betting at least 2" Not nearly as hard of rain as last night but I would love a week of no rain even if it's hotter than hell out.

    Re: 8/10 Weather

    Notice the local weather people were WAY off on this one? I watched the 5 & 13 webcasts and neither claimed we even had a chance at anything more than a sprinkle.

    The new inch of water in the basement tells me we had a "chance".

    Sorry if I'm grumpy. It's 4 AM and I'm nursing a sick sump that can't keep up.

    And it just started raining *again* in DSM.

    Very annoying. Didn't sleep much last night at all. Went to bed tonight trying to catch up but new storms keep firing up.

    Same here in Ft. Dodge last night . Our power went out at 9:15 and did'nt come back on until 6:00 a.m. Not great when the temp. and humidity are so high still at night. Now like was posted before I watched the news at 10 and they say a slight chance of showers. It's been raining and thundering here for the last 5 hours.

    Re: 8/10 Weather

    rain gauge had 2.7" in it this morning here in Beaverdale and sounds like I will have to take another route into work today too. Just over 7" in 48 hours is no fun and I don't like how it looks like we won't get much of a break for awhile either! My sump has been working OT and I still have some annoying seeping in places too that I have to keep cleaning up.
