Debbie's trying to get into my bedroom.

My roof is leaking. :-(

As someone living in Florida's drought conditions for the last 15 years, I'll take every raindrop with a big smile.

Get the lake back up to pseudo-normal levels and then maybe I'll start to complain.

Folks are flooded out of their home on Longboat Key. Was downtown Sarasota by the water, big surge. Nonstop rain (good for the drought, for sure), downed trees, some damage to our doors. Damned thing hasn't even come ashore yet, and could still head this way.

This is a really strange storm, and has been a really strange storm pretty much its entire life.

Despite the fact it's been a sheared piece of crap it's been delivering some really amazing weather, some very large and long-tracked tornadoes which is unusual for a tropical system (which usually has short-lived tornadoes), not to mention spectacular amounts of rain. It's a huge weathermaker but a shiatty tropical storm, with convection confined to the east side pretty much the entire time. The lower level circulation has been polluted with many small mesovortices which I think have caused its erratic movement. It's busted basically every single model, even the GFS which had it pegged correctly to go east and not into Texas, but didn't foresee the stall which Debby is in right now.

There's a few analogues for Debbie, like Tropical Storm Fay in 2008 and Tropical Storm Allison, but Debby has never been nearly as organized as those two were really at any time. It's always looked like some kind of slop gyre monsoon trough. I mentioned yesterday that I sympathized for the NHC in that they had to make an extremely difficult forecast that no one would likely be happy with but they did something I thought was a little odd, calling for strengthening when it has been pretty clear for a while that the total lack of convection and dropping sea surface temperatures indicated Debby was on the wane. Maybe not waning enough to not launch some squalls on its far east side, but the cloud tops over much of the inner circulation have been warming for a while now. With the latest forecast they seem to have given up on any more strengthening.

It could always pick back up on Friday when it hits the Atlantic.

It's been a long time since i've seen our local weathermen so excited. It's fun to see, except my co-worker refused to come to work today to relieve me.

Her: They say on the news to stay inside!
Me: I'm looking at the radar, there's no rain between your house and here!
Her: Well I don't think that I can risk it.
Me: ...

Still hasn't rained, at least I got a few hours of OT.

We haven't seen the sun here in South Florida since Wednesday.

I thought they were projecting a cold front from the north that would interfere with that.

That said: rain good - concomitant dreariness bad.

It wouldn't be so bad if she weren't so big, slow, and damp.

Hey man, it's cheap, the pillows are fluffy, there's no hypodermic needles in the bed, and there's plenty of tasty oranges when I wake up, so fark off.

Well unless the storm destroyed all the citrus crop in which case I'll find a Best Western with a decent mango policy.

Where are you, in Jupiter? {based on your profile location} . This storm doesn't seem to know where she's going, or what she came here for. I can relate to that feeling. ;-)

Up in PSL, watching the weather.

Geez. And I thought my back yard looked bad.

My neighborhood is right on the tip of the "headwaters of the Everglades (Shingle Creek)." We get very floody.

I think I remember him saying once that he's on the Treasure Coast.

I live in Jupiter and while we've gotten a decent amount of rain, it's nowhere near the amount the areas around Jupiter have gotten.

Yesterday was the perfect example. It was raining North, South, and West of here all day, but we got heavy rain for only like an hour and a half.

I swear the inlet affects the weather here.

It's getting a little rough down here. I don't even want to know what Bayshore Blvd looks like right now, let alone downtown Tampa.

Staying firmly in my neighborhood and not leaving it. It's highground.

Gainesville here. Debby is some trouble but we /really/ need the water. My friends in Cedar Key have been hurting, especially since their wells started pumping salt water

Yeah, but it's Shore Acres. Like many areas of Pinellas/Hilsbrough it's just swamp that was filled in and had houses built, OF COURSE it floods. Shore Acres gets the double wammy of being right on the water.

5.8" of rain NW of Gainesville, so far.

I loved the rain we got in Gainesville yesterday... it's nice to actually see water in our retention ponds! I'm actually a little disappointed that it's not raining more today (at least not yet).
 
2012-06-25 12:34:33 PM
What a crappy start to summer. I took my 12 yo daughter to Camp Wildwood GS camp just North of Orlando yesterday. :(

I'm over by OIA... and yesterday's rain brought a turtle to my garage door. I put him out back, where a small pond is central to the backsides of the neighborhood houses. He walked halfway to the pond, turned around and walked back to my patio. He then proceeded to hunker down under my grill.
Looking back, that story was pointless.
 
2012-06-25 12:41:53 PM
Pasco County, here. We have been declared a disaster area (not much different than normal), and a state of emergency was declared today. LOTS of flooding, I have not seen this kind of rainfall flooding here since...Maybe ever. The last hurricane that hit our area (New Port Richey) dumped 17 inches of rain, and we are at 13 inches from TS Debby.

We seem to be west of the rain, today, due to Debby's large circulation. However, we ARE worried about the forecast track taking her ashore near Crystal River...This could set us up for a surge, and no water can escape our rivers while that is going on.

Now, for a breaking news video
