Drought watch, continued

This was the quote of the day on my personalized Google page:

The nice part about being a pessimist is that you are constantly being either proven right or pleasantly surprised.
- George F. Will
Today, again the thunderstorms passed us by. We had about 4 minutes of rain around 4 p.m. and 1/10th of an inch.


  1. We just had our first measurable rain in about 40 days. I nearly cried. I still might cry...

  2. Hi Robin: Thanks for commenting. I know just how you feel. I get tears of thanks flowing too -- it just such a stress relief when at last it rains. I want to run out into the rain and get soaked.

    Here's hoping, but our forecast looks dry well into next week. Once again this morning promised showers failed to deliver.


Thanks so much for visiting this site. I have a new country garden blog and I will no longer be publishing comments at this blog. If you have a question or comment about the topic here, please use the contact form at my new blog to get in touch with me.
