Our day of calm

Wow! This week so far we’ve had over 8 inches of rain here at the house. Today should be a day of reprieve, no rain scheduled for today. But that’s good, we need a day to dry out. And the weather services says today is our day for drying out as tomorrow we’re back to large rain chances.

So how much rain did we have?

That pail was empty before we started with the rain. And this picture was taken just the other day. So we’ve had enough rain to fill the entire bucket. 
Like I said, the plants are well watered now.
