Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head

Do you know how many rain songs there?  I haven’t counted them, but I have a medley of weather songs that I have been known to perform and “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” is one of them.  Everyone always sings along to that one.  It’s a good one for tonight.  Dan started the rain song theme in his blog earlier this evening, so I thought I would continue it.

A Flood Watch has been issued for eastern portions of Middle Tennessee through tomorrow. This means periods of rain will continue overnight and through tomorrow afternoon and for some into the evening. The heaviest rain will fall east of I-65.  Additional rainfall amounts of 1-1.5 inches are possible.  This could bring the total including the weekend rain to 3-4″.  One of the main concerns is a slow rise in water levels of creeks and streams and low-lying areas will continue and may result in minor flooding.  Although I don’t expect flooding to be a big problem, just keep in mind that water in some spots could cover the road, especially at night. So remember the National Weather Service slogan, “Turn Around Don’t Drown”.

The morning drive tomorrow will be messy, especially east of Nashville.  Even if the rain has passed you by in the morning, you will most likely deal with some fog.  So leave a little early.

If you have had enough of the rain.  I can relate.  The rain made my trip back home from a holiday trip slow to a crawl.  A 5 hour drive became an eight hour drive.  Yuck!  Needless to say, I was “thankful” to get back home safely.

There were wrecks everywhere including one that involved a few cars, a tanker and a semi truck with a seasonal cargo, Christmas Trees.

The good news is that sunshine returns on Wednesday.  Smile!

    “TRACKER TRAILER,” did you say? Shouldn’t that be “TRACTOR TRAILER”? If your spelling has gotten THAT bad, Ms. Spencer,your first name shouldn’t be “LISA”–it should be “BART!” (WICKED LAUGH)

    Thanks Mr. Nichol for pointing out my late night error. It has been corrected. From the nastiness of your comment, it sounds like you need a little sunshine in your life…too many raindrops falling on your head. Have a blessed day.
