    Thank you Chad and fellow bloggers for all the info during the storm last night. I recorded 2.43″ of rain. Teri, that gives me a head start on our rain fall battle for the spring and summer seasons:)

    Glad thats over!! Being woke up abluntly @ 1-30AM and trying to go back to sleep bout 3 I feel almost like I went out and painted the town last nite! Ha!

    @Mary Anne……The difference’s in rainfall amounts is something that Teri and I kid about. I don’t know for sure where she lives, but I do know it’s within a couple of miles. That’s why I sometimes refer to her as “neighbor”. Sometimes she’ll get a decent amount whereas I’ll get nothing to a little and other times it’s reversed. Not so much difference with snowfall. Glad all you folks up your way always got a nice rain.

    There’s nothing like a tornado siren in your ear…to get you out of bed.

    @Bud, I think my rainfall amounts are correct, however I am going by my weather station:) I hate to admit this, but I slept through the tornado sirens. My daughter was keeping watch though:)
