I was jarred awake at 4 this morning by loud crashes of thunder and heavy rain falling on my back porch. My NOAA radio hadn't sounded, so I did a quick-check of the radar. There were many thunder storms across our area, most of which were down in the Florida Panhandle. Actually, the radar showed a small squall line developing across I-10 between Marianna and Blountstown. So far, no damage from winds has been reported anywhere in the wiregrass, so thank God for that. It's now 8 am, and other than a few lingering storms south of the Interstate, the rain appears to have shifted east, and hopefully it will turn out to be a pretty nice Saturday. We will see some sun later today and temps might make it into the lower 70's. A ridge of high pressure should start to build in and keep us dry for the next few days, as our next good rain maker won't come until the end of the work week. Nearly half of this month's rainfall total has occurred in the past 24 hours. I'm ready for some sunshine now, how about you?
