Happy dance! The (thankfully downgraded to tropical) storm came, with plenty of rain* and rather strong winds, and moved on. In our little community there was hardly any damage, other places did not fare so well, but overall – it could have been worse.
Now one can only hope that this will not happen more often.
*Normal for our region are 4.5″ rain per year, distributed over 14 days. During the storm we had 3.91″ from Sunday 1PM till Monday 6AM. So yes, that’s … plenty.
