If you looked at the weather forecast last night, you might’ve been expecting something of a torrential downpour during the night, and boy would you have been disappointed for the most part. Instead, we rode the storm’s “dry slot” (I swear to God that’s a real meteorological term) and picked up just a third of an inch, instead of the expected 2-3″ of the wet stuff.
Oh well! Sorry weather guys. The flood watch continues, though, as the upstream areas of the Potomac watershed still got pounded pretty hard last night to the tune of 1-2″, which can lead to a swollen waterfront through the city today. So clean out those drains anyway, last thing you want is some unexpected moisture in your lower level.
