The Crops are Saved!

It looks like Don has graciously provided Tidewater with some of his Midwestern weather...



Several of these obnoxious little boogers have touched down to wreak mischief over the last few hours. We have a warning until 10pm and watches until 2AM. Tornadoes are not unheard of here but so many in one day is rather unusual.

Of course we also got some of our more normal weather...just spectacularly so...this is Warwick Blvd in Newport News about 4 hours ago...

This area is about a hundred feet above sea level with the cliff overlooking the river only about 2 blocks away and yet...

The street filled remarkably fast. At one point water was flowing OUT of the storm drains. The intensity of the rain at times was incredible.

1 I've seen the "water flowing out of storm drain" effect a couple of times here at Duckford.  Very disconcerting.  Stay dry.
