Then, last night, the leading edge of the main storm arrived and we've had an inch of rain since midnight.
This could have been so much worse. But it started to warm up Thursday and Friday was even warmer with a steady breeze (mid-40F). By evening the ice dams in the gutters were melted/cleared so last night's rain didn't back up anywhere; went straight to the downspouts. Yay. That had been my big worry.
Right now it is 50+F at 6 am and as you can see by the current radar, there is a TON more water to come (they're predicting 4"). I'm sure there's going to be some flooding over the next couple of days. I just hope that we don't get any of that pink/ice. Ice is the worst. Hopefully that part of the storm will arc over us. Fingers crossed. Good grief! This is a huge storm - from Mexico to Maine!
If you're out this weekend doing your last minute Christmas shopping, drive carefully everyone.
