Cool interactive rainfall amount website.

5.55" @ my house so far.   7.02" here at work in West Mifflin.  My detours had detours this AM due to all the road flooding and closures.  Took over 1.5 hrs to get from Irwin to West Mifflin via my chosen route. Blahhhhhhhhh.....
 
Maybe more this weekend with Florence making her appearance and stalling out.   If the pellet-heads aren't running after this, then there aren't any left!

I'm thinkin it's time to join all yinz all and get back on the water.  Shore grass and timber should be under water for a few days where muddy water should clear first.  Time for chucking 'pigs & Jigs along with buzz baits too.  
 
Don't forget the stinger on the buzz baits and remember, count to one before setting the hook on a surface strike. 
 
This message brought to yinz from someone who spends wayyyyy toooooo much time, watching Bill Dance and Hank Parker reruns.  (from the 80's)
 
 
Good times and tight lines.....   BTDT said that, 10-4?

Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you will feed him for a life time. ~Anne Isabella Thackeray Ritchie (1837–1919)~

Total rain was about 2.5 inches.   Gauges are back to about where they were a week ago.

There wasn't 6 inches of rain thankfully cause right by my house is a creek and it would have flooded into my backyard. I am putting in a small pond back there and am in the process of digging the whole. I have it under a tarp but the water would have washed all the mud right under it. Trying to get it done before the weather gets to bad.
