CHEERS! Happy WORDLESS WEDNESDAY ~ The RAIN GAUGE TELLS ALL!

After 41 days without rain, this picture tells all. 3.8" of rain in a matter of hours...that's about a month's worth.
The ranchers with pastureland and the forest rangers are happy (no red flag fire warnings) as are the gardeners. I slept throught the entire storm, so I was shocked when I looked I saw the numbers! I was expecting .80" !

  4. Isn't it wonderful when you finally get rain after so long. We're used to months and months without rain here ... and when it finally comes, the smell is almost heavenly!

  5. WOW! That's crazy! That's a lot at one time. I need to get me a rain gauge. We had one growing up, and it was a total obsession of my mom's. She would go out and check it ever MORNING.... even if it was just dew!

  6. That's a lot of rain! Don't you love when that happens? We had a lovely, gentle rain for several hours yesterday here at PITV. Quite wonderful after five straight dry weeks.
