Don't know about anyone else, but I got much more rain overnight than they were predicting. Had about 3 inches of water in the wheelbarrow this morning, didn't surprise me because I heard the rain all night long. Will be interesting to see where we end up by Monday, could be as much a 5 inches for the weekend if this continues.

It is starting now. I just was driving down 42 and it was starting to rain. At 5:45 it wasn't. Looks like 90 percent by 10 and thundershowers late this afternoon. At least my wife's phone shows that.

It rained very hard here between ~2:30-3:30 PM, I went out and roads were flooding. There was one intersection in Mays Landing where the water was so deep, I decided not to chance going through it. Wouldn't be surprised to see another 3 inches today when all is said and done. There have been a couple more flood watches issued in the last few hours. Here's an excerpt of one that's in effect until 6:00 PM
