Skywatch... and the Rain Came Tumbling Down

Isaac means "he will laugh," and I guess the remnants of Hurricane Isaac
 had the last laugh in Central Alabama Monday and Tuesday.
 We were relieved that he skirted the state last week,
 but then a portion of the storm sank south and dumped nearly a foot of rain
  in about 18 hours. But it was certainly no laughing matter! I've lived
 in the Selma area for more than 30 years and have never experienced such a rain.
 Streets and some businesses well away from the river flooded due 
to the relentless, heavy downpour after downpour after downpour.
But the sun is shining now!

Looks like the hummingbirds aren't around! Never have disliked rain because it usually refreshes the land, but this kind of rain definitely is not welcomed.

This is the kind of rain they are predicting for us tomorrow. I hope they are wrong about that!
