Title: How Much Rain Y'all Been Getting?
Post by: bohicajuan on July 22, 2018, 12:48:37 AM
I tried to hit the river this morning and do some trout fishing, but I wasn't out there 45 minutes when it opened up like a monsoon from hell. Thunder, lightning, and rain so hard you could barely see 5 feet. It rained for well over an hour and by the time it was over, the river was just one big red muddy mess. All that red Georgia clay runs into the river and you can kiss any fishing goodbye for 24-36 hours depending on how bad it was.

This has been a hot summer, but we've had a ton of rain around here. They had thunderstorm warnings up until 10:00 PM tonight. Earlier this evening I went and got my haircut and picked up a few things at the store and you could hear the thunder plainly inside the mall. Supposed to be clear tomorrow and Monday but then they're saying another round of storms by midweek. Crazy weather.

 :sad: Yeah on crazy weather, bo! We have been having it, too. Last Thursday we had a batch of tornadoes that did a lot of damage but didn't hit right here.

And yeah on the rivers being above flood stage a lot.  :tickedoff

 :shock: That's a lot of water! We recently had a batch of tornadoes and storms pass through Iowa. The worst missed here.
