@ehBeth,
don't you think itll be drained off by then? You do have pumps to the lake no?

WELL, if its standing water that can move a car, you have my permission to stay home and assess damages.

Weve been getting a lot of rsin this year too. We just had 3 days of rainless wather and its starting up again for us, but its usually like an 1.5" day to day.

My gardens re strting to sprout toadtools from all the moisture.

Not wishing to state the bleedin' obvious too much, but stay safe and dry, you Canadianists.




Keep calm and carry on.

Commuting was an adventure . . .

The Toronto area was drying out Tuesday morning after record rainfall the night before closed transit and roadways, stranded commuters knocked out power in several areas, flooded homes and caused other damage.

Environment Canada said some parts of the GTA had been drenched with more than 100 millimetres of rain, trouncing the previous one-day rainfall record of 29.2 mm in 2008 for Toronto and even beating the 74.4 mm monthly average for July.

@farmerman,
We have had a lot of rain. I think 4-6 inches in last 10 days. Glad the drainage is good here but it's not in a lot of areas...but those areas are closer to the Bay and the Myakka River (flood stage 7.7 ft. - emergency-level is at 8 ft.) for days now) which is 45-60 min drive south. The road to the massive Myakka State Park is flooding...but populated areas are scott-free. the problems aren't so bad...as the same thing happened last yr. at the same time. And no real long-term problems resulted as the sun and heat and sunlight dried things up in days again.

No hurricanes here, so far. This new one Chantal is going to sheared apart before it hits Miami. It's off the Antilles now. Bad conditions exist (dry air and shearing) for it to develop into anything beyond more rain. That is the big threat to the mainland.

@Ragman,
I've just phoned Ladyaswas and told her that Canadians have had up to six inches over two hours, so she immediately booked a trip to Vancouver.

@Lordyaswas,
Just the luck of the draw. Typically when one coast is getting hammered, the other is fine. Not this year, apparently.

@Ragman,
She hung up before I could get the chance to say the word rain.
