Update to my previous post. It has been raining very lightly all day today. It doesn’t seem much until you’ve been out in it a while. As of 8PM, we’ve received 1.03 inches of rain today, for a storm total of 6.38 inches in the last two days. Plus, it’s still raining. I’ll update this post with any significant changes.
I took a longer walk after my previous post and didn’t find any major damage in the immediate area. I hiked over to Donaldson Run to see the water level. Until a few days ago, the run looked like this:
The run was incredibly dry. I was able to hike down the middle of it down to the Potomac without coming close to getting wet. Although, I did get in some rudimentary rock scrambling:
But today, it was a different story:
This is a different stretch, but was just as pathetically dry before yesterday. Amazing how much difference one extra-tropical storm makes. I expect the run’s water level to rise over the next day or so as the upstream areas drain into it.
