Wednesday morning storm and deluge-over 3inches of rain

Did anyone else in Central Florida get the deluge of rain Wed. morning? I came to work at Leu Garden at around 7:45am and it was storming and it rained very hard for over an hour. We got 3.15 inches here at the Garden. I live in Altamonte Springs about 12 miles north and hardly any rain.

Got some rain, but not anywhere near the deluge you got.

Gorgeous day in Tampa. It's hard to believe the weather was so different on the east coast.

I wouldn’t doubt we received 3-4” downtown yesterday.  We needed it and all the vegetation looks so perked up and healthy today.

It was a much needed soaking.

      We obtained Tahina spectabilis seed from the first batch that was offered and received them in April 2008, We have planted 7 Tahina palms at Leu Gardens from this seed batch. Almost all of them were planted near other Madagascar natives.
       
      1. acc# 090230, planted July 2009, located in the Palm Garden, growing next to a Hyphaene coriacea (formerly H. shatan) from Madagascar seed.

      Licuala longipes or L. spinosa? It was acquired in 2004 at a South FL sale. Licuala longipes is supposed to be solitaire and trunkless. I have seen a couple others in FL also marked as L. longipes that look like this. Did some misidentified seed get distributed years ago? This is growing at Leu Gardens.
