Cats, Dogs and Frogs!
Whooo doggie! It is REALLY storming outside! 3:30 in the afternoon and it's been pitch dark for nearly an hour. Little pools and rivers are flowing everywhere, and the rain is coming down so hard you can barely see to the other side of the parking lot from my office. Umbrellas are sheer futility.
With all the leaf fall we've had the past two weeks combined with this much rain, those storm drains are gonna clog up fast and flow over.
It looks like complete gridlock from a traffic perspective out there. Northern Parkway is solid tail lights.
Take it easy out there Sports Fans......
Tornado watch till 6:00 PM. Hope we don't become another North Carolina.
UPDATE 4:45: An now, exactly one hour later, there is an amazing rainbow arcing across the view from my office. Really brilliant colors! I can see both ends of it and the entire arc clearly. It's actually much brighter than it looks in the photo, but it was my cell phone and the lights in my office were bright.
UPDATE 5:45: It took me a half hour to get home. It usually takes me 10 minutes, but Coldspring Lane was closed due to flooding, and the detour through Druid Hill Park was backed up completely.
