Rain moves in over Poor Mountain in Roanoke County

When a rain storm has a name, say on like “Ida,” it’s time to worry.

OK, so maybe the heavy rain drenching the area isn’t cauing the havoc that’s hitting coastal residents of Virginia and North Carolina, but we’ve had a bunch of wet stuff here in Southwestern Virginia and it looks like it will be Friday sometime before all the precipitation goes away.

Oh well. The forecast for the weekend looks promising.
