Would you name your dog Derecho?

In the news, the new word of the day is “Derecho”, derived from Spanish, meaning straight.  A long line of thunderstorms moved out the Midwest yesterday with straight line winds blowing outward from these clustered storms extending over 200 miles. This line of super cells follow a frontal boundaries separating cooler and moist tropical air. We were spared the wrath of a “Derecho” as it slid down a frontal boundary to our south. Unfortunately New England will be in the stable cooler air mass with rain heavy at times through early Friday morning. Can we withstand another 2″ of rain in our already super saturation ground.
