Over night we got about 2 3/4" and when I got up this AM between 6:30 &7:00AM I had to empty my rain gage at near noon and now has another 2". SO that is about 10 1/2" since yesterday and they say another 4"-8" by morning.

Anyway just got my Satellite where I was connected and thought I would tell this!

Later,

Skip

Same here Skip. Don't know how much but any and all is welcome. Many of our lakes are dreadfully low. It's still coming down.

Well we ended up with about 15" since yesterday and a little more than 12" of that today. I just wish North of me would have got it like this too then the lake would be on it's way. As it is, it will help, but still a lot of water needed in this lake. Only the lower end got this much and since it's about 65-70 miles long, lots didn't get near as much as we did.

We've gotten 0.06" total this month so far not counting today.. where I believe we've gotten 2-3".. with another 1" overnight. This should help out the crappie fishing a whole lot here. :)

Man thats one intersting looking storm. I don't think I've ever seen that much coverage from one rain storm. Ms is gettin it tonight. Looks someone is hosing the country with a flamethrower.

Well the lake came up almost 2' since yesterday morning and almost all of that came from the rain on just the South end of the lake as that is where we got the 15". Actually pretty amazing rain mainly on this end would put that much in this very large lake.

Now all we need is 9' more,LOL!

However we will take what we can. Yes we are thankful!

Yeah when I could get my Internet connection we would look at the weather bug on my computer and see red and more red coming. It rained so hard at times that it was something else!
