That was quite a storm last night! I think they said we had almost 3 1/2 inches in my neck of the woods. You should see my yard. No serious damage to any of my seedlings (phew!) but flower petals are everywhere! A tree fell over a few blocks from here, but I don't think we had any flooding.

How did you guys fare?

My peonies are gone. Fortunately there are some that have not yet bloomed.

We were in the middle of a neighborhood BBQ when it started. So funny to see how rain affects a party. The adults all dashed inside a garage, and the rain sort of put a damper on things.

But the kids were just the opposite. While it was dry out they didn't seem to know what to do with themselves. When the rain started they perked right up. They were having a blast getting wet and playing in the rain!

We had some heavy rain but not nearly as much as you did. I haven't seen any damage in my area.

We got pounded. The drops were so big and hit so hard it almost seemed like hail.

We actually had a leak in our garage. I guess having one gutter spitting out water to the flash and having another gutter pick it up and take down to the ground doesn't work quite well. I'm not sure about a "global warming", but we're definitely experiencing "global flooding"

Beats having drought restrictions in August, though.

I got pounded with a downpour on my way to a BBQ in Dumfries yesterday, rained a little during the BBQ, and not a drop driving back to Alexandria. Got pounded with another downpour on my way to work today.

The biggest damage i suffered: a wet blue shirt and a clean honda accord.

Last night's rain was much needed for me....they haven't been able to turn the air conditioning on in my apartment yet and its been 80+ degrees in here everyday.
But this morning's downpour on my way to the metro...not so appreciated

We had over three inches here in Reston. The rain pounding the asphalt outside of the parking lot outside of my bedroom window actually woke me up! Just outside my patio door was nothing but a giant mud pit, and it looked like the adjacent country club was becoming puddle-ridden as well.
