Tropical Storm Colin Leaves His Mark on the Phillies’ Carpenter Complex

June 1st is the start of the “official” hurricane season. This year, it took only 6 days for the first serious storm to hit the Clearwater area. Tropical Storm Colin never got to hurricane status but there were a few serious wind gusts that topped 50mph and rain varied from “only” 5 inches to almost 9 inches in Pinellas county.

Due to the state of emergency that was declared by the governor and the horrible weather, the Threshers cancelled Monday’s game. Dropping our houseguests at the field this morning revealed the extent of the damage to the Carpenter Complex. I took a “behind the scenes” video from the private drive along the back side of Brighthouse Field looking towards Schmidt and the more severely flooded Ashburn field.You can see the video HERE.

I also took a few stills which I’ve included below:

Let’s hope this is the last of the flooding and damage pictures for this hurricane season.
