|Yes, Sharon, we have had weather in Kentucky recently that has been worth mentioning!
In fact, we had 2.22" of water in the rain gauge this morning at 8AM. We have had about 10.5" officially this month. I say "officially" as I am the co-op observer for the National Weather Service for Estill County; I report daily high, low, and current temperatures as well as precipitation and other significant weather events to the NWS office in Jackson, Kentucky.
I also keep a close eye on the websites that show river elevations, as our farm access is subject to flooding from backwater from the Red River, as we need to know when we may not be able to come and go as we please. The Red came up more quickly overnight than we have ever seen it, so we did not have time to get a vehicle to the town side of our bridge. DD had to row a boat across and be met by one of her employees on the other side so she could get to work with the water about 15" over the bridge deck. DH decided it was a good day to stay home. He had thought about going across with her, but was afraid that if the water does not go down until late tomorrow he would b stuck at work. DD is a vet and has a place to sleep at her clinic. I am fighting a serious illness and didn't really want to be here by myself for that length of time, though our houses are on high ground and comfortable.
