More Rainy Days
And a Spring Tag Swap
Another Tropical Storm came for a visit! This was TS Debby - took days to make up her mind which way she wanted to go! At one point they feared a direct hit on New Orleans, but then Debby switched and moved over to Florida instead.
Lots of flooding and lots of rain across the state until Debby suddenly picked up and swiftly moved on across and out into the Atlantic Ocean. Just a couple of days ago, the forecast was for us to be continuously inundated until "2 a.m. Friday", but then she started moving and bid us farewell.

Today we woke up to sunshine once again, but there was lots of flooding and many roads were closed for a day or two. No flooding at our house, but plenty of rain. Someone said we had 24 inches of rain, but I'm not sure what part of town. Jacksonville encompasses over 600 square miles, so some areas probably received more rain than others.
I read that, in spite of all the rain from two tropical storms, we're still in drought! Hope we've had our share of storms now for this year, at least. It seems strange that TS Beryl came directly here from the Atlantic, and then TS Debby came straight here from the Gulf - hit from both directions in less than a month!
Just wish we could've sent some of this rain out West to help put out the fires!
Found these lovely tags while sorting out some boxes during all the rain!
