Storm Notes on Hermine

Well, we had lots and lots of rain even before Hermine got named. At my house, we figure somewhere between 8-10 inches early in the week.

Then the depression turned north in the Gulf, and became a tropical storm, and finally, a hurricane. Feeder bands came through, with wind gusts up to about 40 miles per hour. More rain. And a lunar tide much higher than usual. Augmented by a southerly wind that blew lots of water up into the canals and the bays.

All in all, not too bad. Sorta reminiscent of Hurricane Elena, which sat offshore in the Gulf for three days over Labor Day, 1985.
