    Looks like we might get some significant rain through tomorrow night. I see a strong storm headed into Toms River right now, but as usual it's dry down here. We have been missing most of the storms for the past few weeks.

    It looks to me it may or may not hit me very soon. It is just skimming the edge of me. We shall see.

    Looking at the radar again I would say it will mostly miss me.

    Just like yesterday. A lot of noise not much rain. Got about a 1/4" in 10 min earlier but that's it. Lightning is striking within a mile of me now but no rain.

    It rained really hard last night for maybe an hour, starting around 10:00PM, lots of thunder and lightning. Was concerned because I was about halfway through a 17 hour video render and realized that I had plugged my computer into the wall outlet instead of the UPS when I re-arranged things for the FIOS install. Fortunately there were no power interruptions and the video finished rendering this morning.

    Was surprised this morning to see about and inch and a half of rain had fallen. Must have been the most intense rain we've had for quite awhile, lots of stuff washed down the driveway and along the bottom edge of the the yard.

    Another storm came through this afternoon and has been raining on and off, finally moving out now. Got about 2 inches this time, so this has been pretty significant down here. :)

    I'd be surprised if I got more then 3/4" total. Everything skirted by either north or south. They'd very local though. A mile in either direction my friends got pounded.

    Really bad reports from down south in MD & DE. Ship Bottom on LBI is flooded.

    Only got about one quarter inch during the day here, but there was hard rain, thunder and lightning late last night with more than two additional inches. Here's the NWS data, looks like the heaviest rain fell right on the PA/DE border.

    It is really raining hard here. The heaviest rain in a long time.

    Looks like more rain is on the way. According the the NWS we have the potential for 1/2 to 3/4 inches tonight, another 1/2 to 3/4 Friday, 1 to 2 inches Friday night, then 1/4 to 1/2 inch on Saturday.

    National Weather Service has posted a flood warning for the Maurice River in Cumberland and Salem Counties until 5:45 pm Thursday. The Maurice River is currently at flood stage and slowly rising due to rainfall runoff. Please use caution in the area.

    More heavy rainfall is forecast for our area thru Saturday making additional flooding possible. Please follow the weather stations for the most up to date forecast.

    Looks pretty much in line with their text forecast... if you add up those numbers you get a range of 2.25" to 4".

    Whoa... they have bumped the Friday night estimate to 2" - 3" and the Saturday estimate to 1" - 2". So we now have potential for 6 inches of rain over the next couple days. :eek:

    Just in time for the weekend. Didn't Mother Nature get the memo?
