Rain, Rain...won't you stay for a while?

I am sure some people think that I am crazy.

But, we just got our first measurable rain in over 2 weeks and it was getting dry.

We have not had much rain and snowfall was very low this past winter.

But, today we had a nice shower for a few hours.

I am guessing 3/4 inch or so.

We could use this for a couple of days.

As long as the rain falls like it did.

We don't need a monsoon!

 

A rain like this is great for filling the lakes and streams but when it runs off it does little for the lawns and gardens
