Blessed Rain

We got almost exactly 3 inches of much needed rain last night into this morning. It started about 9:30pm and continued past 2am - a nice, slow soaking shower. Better still, it's raining now! We've had a couple of hours of drizzle, but we're under a thunderstorm warning with a rather large storm heading our way from the NW. The heat has broken, too - forecast high for tomorrow is 74!

The drought's not over by any measure, but it's certainly dropped in severity. Another couple of weeks of this pattern and we'll be back to normal. Whatever that is.

Update:We ended up with an even 2 inches from this round of showers and storms.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
