Quite the Storm

I've got half of a post written about what I've been doing to keep busy this summer, but I'm just too tired from everything that was going on today to finish it before midnight. So I'll finish it tomorrow.

But I can still post something short while it's still June, since I've actually got something else to talk about. ;)

How about that rain? It was certainly quite the storm! The lightning woke me up at 05:30 this morning, and we had a bit of trouble traveling the roads in the afternoon (but with a little extra care, we got everywhere safely). The little "creek" in our backyard flooded all the way up to our garden and completely covered it. Apparently, that's the first time that's happened since we've been in this house... over 17 years.

I heard that the football field at McDowell High School, where my family just watched a DCI competition last night, was almost completely flooded today as well.

All in all, we got 4.6 inches (117 mm) of rain today at our house in Girard. I guess after the widespread flooding in Pittsburgh on 17 June, today was Erie's turn.

Any area readers with other impressive (or not-so-impressive) rain totals for Tuesday?

Man, Pittsburgh was crazy that wednesday. I had to drive an hour home in that weather( and by me, I mean my dad.)

It has been getting hotter and hotter here. Yesterday was the hottest day since 2006 in London.

You fail. At blogging. :-\

Well, excuse me! I got busy, and then I've been at camp all week and just got back. I'll write soon, but since I know you'll jump on me if I fail to meet a self-imposed deadline, I'm not telling it to you. So there.
