yesterday I checked the weather and it's all "oh man three tropical storms gonna hit the east coast of the usa" and so I was expecting rain throughout the week. we had a good amount yesterady and some more today. Now oneo f the tropical storms is turning into a hurricane, and could go pretty much right through where I am. Were this to happen, we're going to have high wind, 12" or more of rain throughout the weekend. etc. super intense. also will be my first coastal storm so that is cool.

when has it rained alot where youlive and what happened
it's all just coming back

It only rained twice this summer.

Once it lasted 30 days, and the other time 45.

i used to live in a tropical land where it would rain every day and flood a couple times a year because of climate change


i'm sort of excited to see this storm tbh because ever since moving here i keep hearing people talk about how awful the rain was yesterday and it was barely a drizzle and i miss real storms where the raindrops are ginormous and go SPLAT when they hit the sidewalk and your shoes get soaked and there's sideways rain

That's not really to do with climate change; it's latitude.

Oh I didn't mean that. The amount of rainfall during the wet season has increased to the point where there really isn't anything else that can be done to prevent or reduce the impact of flash flooding, and the dry season has become longer and hotter.

It rained while I was up a mountain/very big hill in Scotland with my gf, 843m high, and the rain soaked us through like 2 layers of waterproof coats

it was unpleasant, and I usually love the rain

not when its raining and so windy that the rain is coming down sideways, into your face, and then running down into your coats through the top. I honestly felt a little violated at times

I was caught in a flash flood at a concert last year, it was a pretty interesting experience. I could jump in a lake and somehow be less soaked than I was that day. Good times.

My town is pretty well known for bad flooding but no serious flood happened in my lifetime.

I know that feel. I've done Snowden three times, and the first two were on lovely days, but the last one was brutal. Went up the miner's track, which isn't hard at all really. But it was about 1°c, if that, chucking it down with high winds. got through it alright and then woke up the next day with hypothermia

hypothermia isn't fun

I think my gf wants to climb that one next, did you stay at a campsite near it?

where do you live?


Anyway, Hurricane Sandy a few years ago was pretty bad. We didn't flood because we're kind of on a hill but there were downed trees everywhere, and power was out for a bit.

i can't remember what it was called, but we stayed at some guest house in blanaue ffestiniog or whatever. can't remember which property it was. We were there for about two weeks though, doing a few stints in snowdonia, caenarvon castle, port meiron. so not a campsite as such, and there were a bunh of us so we needed aproperty that could hold seven people for two weeks

so yeah wish I could help more lol

I lived in Ireland for 23 years, and it rain for 23 years.
I think there was 1 day when the sun came out for an hour but I was asleep on the couch, so I think the lads were joking.

My brother's car was dead during Sandy, and he was afraid the neighbors tree was gonna fall on it. We pushed it into the backyard a few hours into the storm, during the worst of the rain. By the time we got it in the backyard, you would have thought we went swimming.

But besides from that, my family is slowly turning into a house of alcoholics. So getting bread and milk has turned into getting liquor and beer.

It won't be quite this extreme where you're at, but it could get pretty nasty depending on where the storm hits, and how strong it is at that point:

Expect power outages, and a lot of debris from trees. Possibly minor damage to some buildings.
#37
Sandy was probably the worst storm in my area during my lifetime. We had flooding close to levels that weren't seen since the early 1970s. I think power was out for about 3 days after that. Lots of damage to trees.
#38
This one time it rained a lot for at least one whole evening and then there were deep puddles everywhere and my pants got wet when I rode through them on my bike. This is almost a yearly occurrence over here, sometimes it rains this hard two or three times a year even!

Having a boring climate is cool because you avoid all the death and suffering and stuff, but it can be boring
#39
It rained pretty bad the Christmas before last. Proper driving rain and gale-force winds for a good two weeks.
#40
I have also been to the other end of the spectrum and went through a bushfire, twice.

First time wasn't bad but second time the three houses in town that burned down were all in my street and the flames were 20 feet tall and moving at more than 80km/h
