The vanguard of the storm blew through here about 6:30 PM last night. The wind was pretty strong, but it was one of those deals that hit the rim and rolled around us to the north. Counting the usual 5 seconds per mile between the lightening and the thunder, Coker Creek and Tellico Plains probably got pounded. As happens so often, we were only on the edge of it.
Now the rear guard of the storm is sitting on us. At noon, we’ve had about an inch. I wouldn’t be surprised if that doubled, even if it isn’t in the forecast.
I imagine some of the creeks will flood, around dusk if not sooner. Be careful. The current in those things can be a lot stronger than it looks.
