Crazy Rain

Filed under: Photography,Weather — daweathaman @ 10:26 pm

By time I got home from work Friday afternoon, It started to pour like buckets at my apartment in southwest Gainesville. Erin and I took a bold move to get some food in the pouring rain and managed to get to our place alive. I didn’t get any photos until we got back home and the rain ended due to the fear of damaging the camera. I got some interesting shots, especially some some unusual flooding.

What was also interesting was the amount of rain that fell in a short amount of time. Within 90 minutes, 2.14 inches of rain fell at my residence. No wonder there was so much flooding.

About two hours earlier, NWS-Jacksonville radar showed a seabreeze front coming from the east, an outflow boundary coming from the north and a line of showers and storms creeping from the south. I started to think of the possibility of heavy rain coming to Gainesville. Sure enough, by 6 p.m., the rain started to fall. At around 6:15, the sky opened up.

Here are a few shots.
