Yesterday’s forecast for Connecticut was full of Ivan after effects. The first showers took a little longer to get here than I expect, but were still in the state before midnight. Then the big stuff came.
On my way home from work I drove through some squalls. Never fun. Overnight, at times, there was enough rain coming down and sideways to wake me up – and I’m a very sound sleeper.
I was expecting Helaine to wake me and tell me it was raining in, but thankfully it never got to that.
By the time time the rain tapered off, we had over 3″. That’s a lot of rain and enough to cause some flooding this morning.
Here’s the sobering part. This was a whisper compared to what a ‘real’ hurricane can bring. There more I know, the less I want to sit through one.
