Just insane rainfall this year in Charleston. #chs   #chswx  
 
After another half-inch of rain on Monday, we are almost at 30" of rain for the year (at the airport, anyway) and it's just June 11. http://ow.ly/lUgio

Really, really glad I went with the full-resolution cover photo on the +Charleston Weather Google+ page before the redesign hit!

Google deserves all the credit in the world for getting the little details on G+ right, including great support for high-res photography.

From 8:30 PM Monday: Tops of a thunderstorm that, 10 minutes after this photo was taken, was tornado-warned based on Doppler rotation and a pronounced hook echo. Was a pretty photogenic storm from my extremely safe distance of more than 40 miles away!

I hope Google Talk XMPP doesn't go away completely. That would put an incredible number of people at a tremendous communications disadvantage, IMO.

It might really be time for me to get back to running my own XMPP host...
