The cars are on the sidewalk, and that 2 feet wide strip ain't no lawn.

Grass, private property.

The dependable BWSC data

The dependable BWSC data (http://www.bwsc.org/COMMUNITY/rainfall) shows that the rainfall was surprisingly unevenly distributed over the (geographically) tiny City of Boston. Allston and Longwood only received around half an inch but the station near where I live in Dorchester got nearly 3”, with 2.25” in a 45 minute span between 4:05 PM and 4:50 PM.

Yesterday looked torrential at times. I was wondering how it stacked up against the World record and it turns out that we were not even in the same league. The world record for that period belongs to Holt MO, USA with 12” in 42 min. some 70 years ago. Could have been a lot worse…
