Toad Strangler!

I woke up a few times to thunder and heavy rain pounding against the house. Boy was I surprised to see the gauge this morning. 3.52" fell between midnight and my 7:32 a.m. observation time. I'm not sure when the precip began exactly.

July's average precip is 4.12". I'll post again with the combined total when the rain stops today.

Happy 4th!

--UPDATE--

We received 0.20" since the morning reading, bringing our total to 3.72" since last night.

That is crazy!!! What is your record for 24 hours? I would think that would be in the top 5 24-hour totals!

4.56" on 9/14/08 was my all-time high. It was an all-night rain like this one. It's crazy, an area about 10 miles SE of us got 6.24"!

You've got me thinking what my top ten are...hmm.

From midnight to 7:30 you had that much rain?!? Tremendous!

I wonder what the top 5 or 10 rainfall totals are! I might search for that when I have more time!
