Then Came Tammy

This past September was the driest on record for DC in over a century, and the area had recently been classified by the National Weather Service as being in a drought.

Then yesterday the remnants of Tropical Storm Tammy showed up and began setting rainfall records. Since the storm's arrival, parts of the area have received as much as eight inches of rain. Some places in northern maryland have received over ten inches, resulting in a mudslide killed 1400 people.... No, wait, that was in Guatamala.

Whew!!! For a moment there I was actually concerned about the loss of life!
