I can see clearly now the rain is gone...

This picture was from the remnants of Hurricane Gaston a couple of years ago. Thankfully, Shockoe Bottom in Downtown Richmond didn't flood yesterday.

Ernesto dumped about 2-5 inches of rain on central Virginia before moving on. We drove around to a couple of creeks, which, while very full and fast moving, only one seemed to make it over the road. Eastern Virginia got socked with rain and had a lot more flooding.

And we didn't lose power! It blinked a few times, but never went off completely.

We had open house yesterday at school. The rain made it a madhouse, but it was good. Both teachers seem nice. Tuesday is start school day here.

May the muses have rainy days

Thanks Raine, Lauren, and Desiree. My thoughts go out to everyone, too. We didn't fair too badly but other regions got socked.

Awww Mari. Sorry on losing power. That's what I hate. LOL I bet that was a sight.
