Last Friday I posted about a July temperature record Kentucky broke. Well, today Louisville broke another weather related record — except this one wasn’t much fun in breaking.

Louisville set the single day and single hour records of rainfall today. A nasty morning storm followed by an afternoon storm torrented the area with Noah-like proportions. Much of downtown and surrounding areas were under feet of water. Some areas received 6 inches of rain in 75 minutes. A record was set with 5 inches of rain falling in one hour. At the airport, a previous record of 3.76″ (set back in 1879 mind you) was easily bested to 4.50″.

I’m going out to start work on my ark.
