Much to our surprise, we woke up yesterday morning to discover Tropical Storm Bertha formed overnight and was aimed for us.
When we went to bed Tuesday evening, we knew a storm system was coming in from the Atlantic Ocean. The National Weather Service gave it a 30% chance of becoming a named storm. And when we woke up yesterday morning and took off for our walk, that’s what we understood.
Imagine our surprise while we were walking, the National Weather Service upgraded the little storm to Tropical Storm Bertha with a predicted landfall only a couple of hours later. Our first real clue was a band of heavy rain that started before we got back home.
For the rest of the day, we had heavy rains and winds and it tapered off in time for our afternoon walk. No damages here, some minor road flooding near us, but it was a surprise storm for us.
