Well day two of monsoon. Anyone else in this? My brother got home from work and they got about eight inches there, went for a drive and had to clean the road up some first from logs going across the road. Cement bricks were even being carried by the water. It downpoured for a bit and then would go to drizzle, only stopping for a little bit. We only got a little over two inches here. What does everyone else have? STAY OFF THE ROAD, if you can today folks. Fire scanner has been going crazy for rescues and pumpings.

I am so tired of wet! Is it only day two? We had a long soggy day at work today, just had to get the job finished. There are a number of roads closed up here in the northern end of the county tonight. Now it is a good night to stay inside and check out the forums.

That's the way it was back in August down here.  I think it is supposed to clear up for you all tomorrow.  You all be safe and try to stay dry.

Bill it has been so dry (my grass is all but dead) that it is sucking the water like a sponge.

They're reporting over 9" in Harrisburg over the last two days. We had about 7" in York. Couldn't get anywhere yesterday. Roads were closed everywhere you turned due to flooding.

And it is all over and we got a little sunshine this morning. I didn't get out to see if the creeks went down  enough to reopen the roads.

we sure can use it.

This part of Pennsylvania is populated HEAVILY with German and Swiss descendants.  There are quite a few towns named after their German counterparts and a German dialect (Pennsylvania Dutch) is still spoken by some, mainly in Amish and Mennonite communities.  Amish church services are still held in proper German (they call High German) and up until about 50 years ago, there were quite a few non-Amish churches that held German services.
