Day 250 - Hanna was here

Hanna passed through Maryland/DC/Virginia today, leaving some flooding, power outages, road closures and accidents. For us, Hanna was a steady rain starting about 9am and ending about 4pm. I took the picture above of our front yard about 1:30 (see Marianne's post for the back). We were on the western edge of the storm with little wind damage in Frederick. I also found an interesting USGS water watch site that provides maps with water flow at monitoring sites around the US. They put up a link to show the effect of Hanna on streams and rivers in her path. Our rain was just over 4 inches for the day.
