Eye-popping storm...

...for the upper Schuylkill River Basin that is. I just stumbled across the Tulpehocken Creek, a Schuylkill trib that runs into the river at Reading, PA. The creek at Bernville has so far risen from 2' to almost 8' today. According to the USGS the record is about 9.5 feet, set during Hurricane Agnes in 1972. Looks like it will surpass that tonight.

A floodwatch is in effect for Berks and Montgomery counties, which might as well be code for Schuylkill River Basin.

Go figure. I start a real job and am now blogging more frequently. Crazy weather makes me do it.
