From @eightyeghtkeys on Twitter. Crazy flooding in Wayne, PA (Radnor Township).

South Wayne Avenue and Runnymede Avenues. Next is a Google shot of the area when it is normal as in not a monsoon:

The water was like that here yesterday too. And we expect more rain and there have been more thunder and lightning.

We are on a flash flood watch and friends tell me that there were crazy straight line winds yesterday in Paoli:

Charging my phone up at Starbucks. Heard the chainsaw though out the night still no electricity. Not sure what happened but it was a straight swoop from Darby-Paoli to the back of the Paoili Acme. Maybe just high winds but giant trees taken out. Thank goodness no one got hurt as it happened around 5:00pm yesterday.

Yesterday in my neighborhood the water was crazy and some of my smaller trees bent into U shapes, but fortunately did not break. A friend of mine had their tree split in half.

I really wish that municipalities, as well as Harrisburg would look at climate change in action and see how the storm events are affecting us. Because this is yet another reason why development needs to be slowed down. But hey, I’m just a mere mortal and a female.

Stay safe and dry today.

  1. At 12:03 PM the warning alarm on my cellphone scared the bejeebies out of me.   I was sorting laundry – sheets here… tees and blouses that don’t go in the dryer there… HELL!  Where’s the damned PHONE!    The alarm stopped. Drat. Find home phone.  Call Cellphone…  OK…WHERE is it??? I HEAR it.. caca. cellphone stopped singing…Call again…AH!  I’m getting closer to it…the sky is getting darker.  I HEAR the cell sing!….   I emptied the laundry basket.

    I looked for whatever reports online.
    One weather maps showed that all of the county and all counties south, east and north should expect “significant flooding”

    And I found: “At 12:00 PM, photos were received of high water around Wayne, PA. Street flooding was also reported near Berwyn, PA.
    Between 1 and 2 inches of rain have fallen. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible in the warned area.”

    I do believe that every municipalitiy on the west side of Rte 100 is dealing with extreme sun and humid heat.

  2. All of those impervious surfaces added — so much hardscape and so many parking lots.

    And not a single thought as to where the water will go once it is off the specific property, or the effects visited on those downstream.
