Balm To My Eyes

From NOAA:

Statement as of 11:03 AM EDT on October 06, 2005

... Heavy rain with potential for flooding this weekend...

A cold front will approach the region from the west on Friday. At
the same time... the remnants of Tropical Depression Tammy will
head up the East Coast. The interaction of these two systems over
the mid Atlantic region will lead to an increasing threat of heavy rain
tonight into early Saturday. Rain may be heavy at times Friday and
Friday night. The steady rain will gradually move east of our area
on Saturday as the cold front moves east.

Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are possible at this time with
localized amounts in excess of 6 inches even possible. These
amounts look sufficient to produce flooding of small
streams... urban and poor drainage areas. River flooding is not
anticipated at this time. A Flood Watch will likely be issued
later this afternoon.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio all hazards or your favorite media
source for further updates.

You have to understand that it hasn't rained around the Dee Cee area literally in months. I know this particularly because I planted some roses and foundation shrubs after we got back from Maine at the beginning of August and I've had to go out and water the damn things every single weekend since.

Now if only it were going to be a wee bit cooler - say, 45 degrees and rain, my very favorite combination of weather. D'ye ken me ancestry, Laddies?

The best thing about when its windy cold and rainy is drinking hot cocoa
