Re: Weather

Tony et al.: Rain! Glorious rain!! In 24 hours, our little county got
2.64 inches of the stuff...it was like manna from heaven! Looking at our
climate data from the National weather service, it looks like we are
still down about 8 inches of rain so far this year, but given that this
was our first serious rain since July 20...wow! we'll take all we can
get. The ground was still very wet on Sunday, so I couldn't get into my
gardens like I wanted to but that is something I can definitely live
with...although, I must say two months without rain have left my gardens
in sad, sad shape. I'm not much of a waterer...I kind of figure that
with the periodic droughts we get here, anything that is planted in my
yard had better be able to withstand some pretty severe water
restrictions...I guess it's a kind of natural selection practice I have
going on...I don't really go to great lengths to protect anything in the
winter either...if I have to fuss over it, I don't want it!
