Thursday was yet another rainy day that brought over 5 more inches of rain from midnight to 7:30 a.m. and it continued to rain, so I had to again empty the raingauge in the backyard.
There were also 4 tropical systems in the Atlantic Ocean basin, and I reported on them for NASA. Here's the image (RIGHT) I used in the update, that includes the remnants from Tropical Storm Lee (raining over the eastern U.S.); Hurricane Katia off the U.S. east coast in the Atlantic Ocean; Tropical Storm Maria about 700 miles east of the Leeward Islands in the central Atlantic and headed toward the U.S. and newborn Tropical Storm Nate in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. This cool image was taken from NOAA's GOES-13 satellite, and created by NASA's GOES Project.

Early Thursday morning (12:30 a.m.) t-storms woke him and kept Sprite and me (Rob) up for over an hour. I made use of the time by learning of a tornado warning in Annapolis, Md. and texting our friend Ed (everyone else was out of the path) - and fortunately, there was no damage and he was safe.
