Moped Get-Together and More Rain

Yesterday we officially got the Dayton Area Mopeders together at my place for dinner and a ride. It rained most of the afternoon and I was getting heckled for arranging this on a rainy day... but I was planning this about three weeks out, so forecasting a chance for rain would be a crap shoot. I did take a look at the radar after dinner and we had a dry slot moving into the area and we were able to go for a 13 mile ride. No one broke down and we even had a chase vehicle. We stopped before returning back to my place for a group picture as well. It was a great time meeting everyone and I look forward to getting together again, soon.
On to the weather... More rain for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We can expect to see a LOT of heavy rain. Some locations may see half a foot or more of rain. Flooding will be a huge concern. If you live in a flood prone area, make sure to prepare. Temps should get into the 70's for Monday and Tuesday, but much cooler for the end of the week, but at least sunshine will return to the area. Stay dry and have a good one!

  1. What a rain forecaster you turned out to be. I wonder if this will shut off one day and then we got back to a summer-long drought?

    Glad you all got the ride in.

  2. I dunno Abe...we sure have seen that scenario play out quite a few times. Farmers are probably wanting dry weather pretty bad, but I dunno about that dry.
