Re: OT: Back again

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

>     It is good to have you back.  I hope you got some rain out of that

About 5 PM last night we had a good rain--the first since late May.  My
"rain gauge" (an old bucket out by the compost heap) rated it at about 3/4
to a full inch, but it fell all too quickly and I fear much of it became
runoff; and since no blessing can be unmixed, it flattened my young corn.
About five miles south of Farmville, in Hampden-Sydney, the amount of rain
was not significant.  So perhaps the Curse of Farmville is being lifted.
Weather gurus say a better chance exists for rain on Saturday and Sunday.
