    I've yet to see a single drop from this rain event taking place down south. All the local media outlets and NWS have been talking about the last few days is the coming 2-4" of rain. Tell my wilted crotons and see if the rain chance perks them up. I'll be surprised if we get .02-04" of rain. I see a full blown afternoon of watering in my future.

    Ray - We've had over 4" here in Boca Raton and the entire system is moving towards you. Batten down the hatches, turn off your irrigation system, and get ready for a soaking.

    It's going NW Ricky. I think it bypasses me altogether. What will be coming is the dreaded 50 something degree morning lows Thursday and Friday.

    We had 6" of rain during the (first)weekend sale, and now another 6" over the last two days. The ground is soaked!
