We have about 1.5 inches in the rain gauge so far from last night's thunderstorm and still raining lightly.
Chloe alerted me every five seconds that it was thundering. So much for sleeping in on a Saturday.

So far, I have 1.25 inches and it is still raining lightly. I also see part of the sweet corn is laid over and some tall flowers.....I knew there was some wind. I got up at 2:30 am to unplug the computer and never went back to sleep; spent time in my easy chair reading I see a nap in my future!.

Isn't this just great?? I got up as well, Glenda, and unplugged things. Had a big lightning loss in April and never want to go through that again!

Had 2.5 inches in gauge about 30 min ago and it's still sprinkling. I see lawn mowers in our futures --

We got another 1 1/4 inch last night and still a light sprinkle here. That totals a little over 7 inches of rain in a little over a week. Sure different from last year.

I got another 1.6 and I'm losing track of the total since this all started. When I looked this morning I thought did I forget to dump it last time. It is wonderful for August. I am not complaining but I think the tomatoes will start having problems in this warm humid weather. As I said before the Rose of Sharon is looking great. I had two front lawn mower tires flat and off the rims Friday and I am still working on that problem.

Wha???? Everything so wet this AM but no rain for overnight in gauge. ? (Maybe the squirrels are playing a trick on me---) looking much like rain very soon, though, as Intellicast map has a sea of green and yellow.

Hope everyone gets some of this -

I didn't empty the rain gauge on Friday, there was an inch and a half, and just now there is an additional 3 inches, making it 4 1/2" this weekend. Still raining.

I dumped out 2.8 and then 1/2. That's enough for me for awhile. I'm starting to worry about my basement again. Why does it always seem either too wet or too dry? lol

Adding another 1/2 to my total from last night/this morning.
