We went out tonight for a walk around the Panther Trail as mentioned in the previous post. As we drove over to campus, I was thinking, “Should have checked the weather.” It didn’t look too menacing when we started out, but as soon as we hit the halfway point, i.e., the furthest distance from the car, it started to rain. Just lightly at first and we thought it’d be ok. But soon the light rain got heavier and then it turned into a full blown downpour. We were soaked through in minutes and we were still a half mile from the car. By the time we reached the car, it had almost stopped and two minutes later, it did stop. The radar image below shows how tiny the storm was, but it was enough rain to flood the roads and fill the parking lot to about four inches. Lesson learned.
