On my sidebar, you'll see a plea for rain. We have not had measurable rain at my house since June 30th. Before that it was April 26th. The weather guessers tease us with 30% and 50% chances of rain all the time. What normally happens is, it rains really hard for 18 seconds and then quits. Yesterday we had a 100% chance of rain for the first time in forever. It rained all 100% for about 18 seconds. I spent the day pouting.
This morning, the cat wanted out at 5:30. When I opened the window he hesitated and I, in my sleepwalking daze, couldn't figure out why. Then I realized the sound I was hearing was water dripping off the roof!
It has rained lightly, since then. When it got light enough, I went out to visit with my rain gauge. I was astounded that there was in inch of rain in it!
So hurray, hurray and happy dance for the rain! The fire danger is over for the time being.
