Not a day for gardening

The only description for Sunday is wet. It rained from dawn to late afternoon with the heaviest rain in the afternoon. One spell of particularly heavy rain in the afternoon recorded a rate of 86.6mm per hour. That’s the second highest since the ridiculous rate of 144mm/hr in July which caused some local flooding. The video below is my best effort to capture this rate of rainfall. It doesn't do the rainfall any justice.

I’m sure my Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station came up with a console message saying “raining cats and dogs” at this rate of rainfall but I only caught a fleeting glimpse as the rainfall subsided as I’d been busy videoing the event. Has anyone else seen this message on their weather station console?
