Hurricane Jeanne is over. We’ve survived another one. Our house held up well. We had some shingles flopping around, but no damage and no leaks. We had winds of 50-70 miles per hour. Kay measured about 7 inches of rainfall in our rain gauge.
How does a rain gauge measure rain flying horizontally? If we measured 7 inches of vertical rain, I wonder how many inches we got of horizontal rain?
Newsmen reported that the farmers almanac predicted 5 hurricanes for Florida this season. They are saying we may have one more. I sure hope that Ivan counts twice, since it passed over Florida twice in its amazing journey.
