Rain in Raleigh; a revived camera

1/2" since Monday afternoon

I spent over three months in Raleigh last summer, and can remember a good rain happening maybe three times during that period. So the sights of wet roads, puddles and operating windshield wipers several times past week has definately been a comparatively unusual thing for this region. Thanks to a slow-moving low pressure center hanging around, the rain is continuing today. Since the rain gauge was installed on the deck yesterday at noon, nearly one-half inch has fallen at the house on Ten Ten Road.

In other good news, the FX1 lives! Whatever problem it was having on Sunday has vanished - at least for now. The video on tape did not show the scrambled picture that the viewfinder was exhibiting - leading me to believe that the problem may have been moisture-related and isolated to the viewfinder. The viewfinder sticks out of the Portabrace rain cover and usually gets soaked, but normally with no issues. I had the camera out in heavy rain and hail for about 10 minutes on Sunday, which may have been enough to get some water into the viewfinder enclosure.
