I checked our rain gauge this morning and it showed 1.1 inches of much-needed precipitation. That lines up with the rainfall total at the nearest weather.com station at Sibley Swale, where the total was .91 inches. I may have had a little water in my gauge from watering earlier in the week. Whatever the amount, I know many farmers and gardeners are grateful. Now, if we could just get a little heat….
Monday morning update: I checked the rain gauge at about 7:30 this morning and it had just shy of an inch in it for a total of about 2 inches.
