They'd threatened us with rain since Saturday, but never delivered. Finally, all that forecast rolled in last night around 10:30 p.m.
It started to storm - and it didn't let up until 7:00 a.m. this morning (followed by another hour of just plain rain). There was no real sleep last night. Even when I did doze off there were storms in my dreams.
All told this morning - 2" in the rain gauge.
Won't have to water today, that's for sure. The barrels are full to the brim, but certainly aren't needed at this point, I think.
As for the rest of the week - 80s and thunderstorms forecasted through to the weekend. Luckily I have a lot of 'indoor' stuff to do this week: brakes need fixed on the car, eye exam, beans to blanch/freeze. And then there's housework (but only as a last resort!).
With the non-stop lightning/thunder, we probably got hundreds of tons of
fresh nitrogen in the air. *heh* Oh goody. *sigh* The grass has
never gone dormant this year. Thank goodness I got all the lawns mowed
And, lest you think I've been lazy, I've been pretty busy outside and have been posting on the sidebar blogs. That's where the action is right now. ;-D
