Nothing but chirping birds and clearing skies up here....
Definitely some training south shore though some progress on the west side towards the south.....
Train....Drops of Jupiter. Good morning ADHD....
Or Daylight. Yeah, my mind is all over the place, too.
You should be having an enjoyable morning up there. Meh, the Southshore is due for its reckoning I suppose. The Northshore has had more than its share of meteorological love this Spring.
I'm ok now to live somewhere that has a marginally better chance of winter fun and perhaps marginally less chance of flooding rains (though much of that issue to having actual elevations above msl).
Growing up in Algiers and going to school on the east Bank, I rather enjoyed the flooding and drama.....because of course I had no responsibilities. My memory the May 3rd (5th?) flood in the mid 70's (75'?) was our hallmark flood.

It appears that for folks on the South Shore, this mess is going to be with us for awhile this morning. I'm looking at radar and I'm seeing a ton of training. The forecast was for it to clear out by noon. I didn't expect to see severe weather this early in the day, though. Alas. The good news is that it is coming in waves, not one continuous blob.
