Flash flood warning for Augusta and surrounding areas

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood WARNING for Augusta County, Waynesboro, and surrounding areas including Sherando, Afton, Wintergreen, Montebello, and Big Meadows. Overnight downpours and heavy rainfall today may cause runoff and flooding.

A home school friend who lives in a home on the slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains practically within a stone's throw of the Skyline Drive Facebooked me this morning and said they had received two inches of rain overnight on top of the two inches received earlier in the week. With continued moisture, she noted, "Hope we don't slip off the mountain!"

Read more about the rain and local reactions at my morning post at the Washington Examiner.
