I live just northeast of Mobile, AL and we've just had our 7th wettest December ever. All of the rivers that come down and make up the Mobile-Tensaw Delta are looking at potential record setting high water levels. The water will probably crest well above the Claiborne dam. All of this water makes it's way down to the delta and Mobile Bay and turns it all into a chocolate mess. By next Wednesday you should be able to see **** tracks across the Tensaw River. Looks like we're going to get another big dose tonight.

I live on the coast north of Charleston.

Only seen the burning ball of gas unobstructed for several hours since Christmas. I could darn near float my boat in the drainage ditches around the village!

Raining now!

Should be nice Saturday with lots of sun for perhaps 5 days.

Seriously though, I think my part of SE Texas is pushing 60” of rain for 2018 which is about 15” more than average.

Up here in northern VA/DC area we’ve had our wettest year on record dating back to 1871. Depending on the airport we ended the year at 65-70 inches about 2X normal. Great year if you like catfish.

20 inches above normal rainfall for 2018 in Tallahassee/FL Big Bend. We're growing webbing between our toes, the water looks like 4 day-old coffee and most of the trout have hightailed it to Cancun. Thankfully there's about a 5-day window of sunshine on tap--right after another round of showers tomorrow. :mad:

I'm ready to slap El Nino back into his crib.

Wettest July on record, wettest December on record.
Wettest year on record.
Almost 90” in Myrtle.
For some perspective, the Amazon basin averages 90” annually.
Our usually very fertile brackish watersheds are 0ppm salinity.

Wilmington,N.C. ended up w/ 103", which obviously surpassed the previous all-time high of 83". Even before the hurricane , we were on pace to break the record, but Florence dumped 23 plus inches on Wilmington, and a total of 8 trillion gallons in NC. And yes--it's friggin' raining now

Normal rainfall for September in SE Texas is 5", September 2018 we had over 25". It hasn't stopped, I poured 3.5" out of my rain gauge from the last 24 hours, I've quit keeping up with it.
