I have never seen rain as heavy as the storm that just hit here. I literally couldn't see the house across the road because of the rain.

It must have cooled down from 90 to 75 in fifteen minutes here. Now there's warnings that the next storm may hit in ten minutes with 4 cm hailstones. (That's an inch and a half).

Calgary's smokin'! City on track for hottest summer on record

He said Calgarians are seeing hot weather because of a “sky dome.” The prairies are currently under a high-pressure area that’s not letting any weather in and causing warmer temperatures.

By the way - that .jpg is hosted on photobucket and it posted successfully. So, now I'm more confused about what is going on at that place.

Back to Seattle today, and the city is completely socked in by a thick layer of smoke coming from forest fires in BC. My ride to work this morning made me feel like a piece of brisket, getting a nice smoky finish.

However, the smoke layer is actually keeping the temps down...only supposed to hit 91 (!!!) today, as opposed to Portland which is expecting 106.

Guess I can put this here.

Thunderstorm hit New Orleans last weekend.

$15 billion on flood control measures and guess what?

Flood

Residents say many storm drains and canals are too clogged with debris to be effective. At Tuesday’s council meeting, public works officials said the city has only enough money to clear 68 of the 1,300 miles of canals this year.


By Tuesday, as community skepticism deepened, the board acknowledged that eight pumps were either broken or out of service for maintenance when the rain began. Power shortages also hampered pump operations in some neighborhoods.


In an uptown neighborhood, some of the flooding might also have been exacerbated by a Corps of Engineers project designed to limit future flooding. Contractors digging new drainage culverts left three 70-foot holes in metal panels that lead to the Peoples Avenue Canal, allowing water to back up into the neighborhood, said Col. Michael N. Clancy, commander of the corps’ New Orleans district.


I am speechless.

In fairness, the issue was too much rain fell in too short a time, and it was overwhelmed. Would be an issue anywhere, and exacerbated by New Orleans' peculiar geography.

From that same article:

“If you are asking me to drain nine inches of rain, I need six times the pumping capacity, six times the drainage pumps and six times the canals,” Becker told the council. “I don’t need three or four more pumps, I need 400 or 500 more.”

And even if New Orleans could pump out that much water, the continual pumping process is causing the city to sink, said Ed Link, a civil and environmental engineering professor at the University of Maryland who led a task force that examined the city’s flood protections after Katrina. He said that because the city’s soil has high organic content, when it dries out, “it basically collapses.”

Anyone? I had an employee text me his flight was canceled due to bad weather. I just saw the first part of the text in a preview notification, but when I read the text later, he for some reason through in "also, many flights were canceled due to the riots". My BS meter went through the roof at that point.

It rained last night, overnight. If it stormed, it didn't wake me or the dog. It's possible it was worse in some locations that others, but I'm pretty close to EWR.

You don't have this dude's flight details to check what happened?

No, it was a personal trip. Oh well, he's on a PIP anyway and probably headed out the door in a few weeks, so no biggie. I've just been getting some sketchy excuses lately from some employees and I'm tired of it.

If you have his airline and flight number, it's easy enough to check a flight status on the website or app.

He's completely lying. Came into today and said it was "chaos in New York City and the airports were shut down for the national guard going to Charlottesville". He's not the brightest bulb and he's not long for this job, so my boss just said to ignore it since we're managing him out anyway.

We will be OK. If our house is flooding, then pretty much all of Houston will be submerged in a Noah's Ark type flood. We were planning on going to my parents house in Austin this weekend, but can't risk getting stranded anywhere. Pretty much the entire area from Houston to Austin has the potential for that much according to forecasts.

2 to 3 FEET of rain would be a Noah's Ark type flood situation. The GFS that just ran along with its ensembles were a stunner.
