    Congrats! I sure wish we'd get a little moisture, but at this point in the drought, it wouldn't help much. Just hoping we get a lot of snow and rain this winter.

    We got a nice shower this morning too. I was getting about an inch gap between the ground and foundation (crawl space). I spent most of last night running sprinklers around the foundation of the house.

    I love the rain, sometimes.

    last night we got hit with some pretty heavy downpours. nice. no blackouts, so all is well.

    then theres today.

    I checked the local weather, nothing called for today.

    I ran over to a local lumber yard, needed one piece of cherry plywood, fell short a foot, but figured its always good to have around.

    as soon as I drove away from the lumber yard, it came down.

    I live 4 minutes from the lumber yard.

    by the time I got home, the rain had stopped. It only rained for 2 minutes, and in that 2 minutes, my sheet has alot of water streaks on it, and I hope it dries well. I wiped it down.

    amazing timing.

    That being the case, I guess we should all hope for rain somewhere around September 6th or 7th so you'll be sweet-smelling for the get-together!

    BTW, your rain finally made it down this way. It started about an hour ago, and we got nearly 2 inches in the first 45 minutes. Seems to be tapering off, now...
