They’ve been saying we are due for days of rain. In our case, up where we live, we’ve had nothing but little bitty sprinkles.
At least until today.
Today we went from this small little bit of sprinkles, about 1/4″ in of rain for most of today. But than the storm came in. By storm we are now up to 3.6 inches. The line has been almost vertical. We are now down to a light sprinkle, but with probably more rain due. And probably due again tonight.
We are under definite flood warnings. I’m pretty sure we actually have some flooding in the area, even if we don’t know where. But I know at one point the storm was so bad my fur babies (dogs) were jumping into my lap, even though I had my laptop on my lap. But even now, I can hear the thunder rattling windows in the house. Just to be on the safe side I’ve even lit a candle, scented (good reason to light a candle) just in case we had the lights go out. This is a bad storm.
To put today’s rain in perspective, our rain weather station says we’ve gotten 3.9 inches of rain this week, so far. And up until last night we had 0.11 inches of rain. We’ve gotten the rest of it today.
But we’ve been lucky, no loss of power, not even any flicker of the lights. But the storm is not over. Looking at the radar we actually have a large swath of more storm on its way. It may make for a tough night of sleeping.
But the garden should be happy. Trees should be happy. And yes, even my squash plant (it has flowers) should be happy.
It might be a storm, but its rain.
