Rain, rain, come on down....

CoCoRaHS rainfall reports

Nexrad storm total rainfall as of 1:25 p.m.

When I was a mere child there was a little girl in my neighborhood who apparently really wanted to see a lot of rain one day. She exclaimed, "Rain, rain, come on down. Make a big swimming pool!"

There have been a few pools made in North Alabama during the past 24 hours. Some parts of Northwest Alabama have received in excess of four inches of rain and flash flood warnings are in effect. I have recorded .94" here at my location, which is less than many surrounding areas.
