Tropical storm Fay was pretty interesting to watch even thought it never got that strong.  It just moved so slow that it dumped flooding rains with lots of reports of high rainfall totals.  The that grabbed me was the spotter report of 27.5 inches of rain.  There were lots of reports of 15 to 20 inches in Florida too.  I would think the lucky thing is that the storm didn’t stall or move very slowly over mountainous terrain.

The storm held onto it’s organization pretty well while pretty much drifting over Florida.  That surprised me and was pretty interesting since the center wasn’t over it’s fuel source.

Now there’s a another tropical depression that looks like it should move north west over Cuba.  IF that goes over Florida or the south east US it could make for another mess down there.
