Finally, ... We are Drying Out

The storm that came through Washington and surrounding areas this week was, ... well, ... like nothing we have seen for some time.  What did I hear on the news last night?  As much as seven inches of rain over two days?  That was the extreme.  I think in DC proper it was a little over five inches.  Amazing amounts of rain. The Rock Creek was well over its banks with what looked like rapids.  For those who know, the Rock Creek is not a white water rapid body of water.

This morning we were all so happy to see the clouds part and the sunshine start to peek through.


A pretty steely blue sky this morning over the Whitehurst Freeway.


And the pavement drying along this in-ground drain.

"April showers bring May flowers."  I think that statement is particularly relevant this year.
