After a fairly dry summer, we’ve certainly been making up for it over the past two weeks. On Aug. 7 and 8, my rain gauge collected 2.75 inches of rain; over this past weekend, it picked up another inch. Today, after extremely heavy rains, the gauge had 1.75 inches in it — with more rain predicted for tomorrow. This brings our total for the year to 10.24 inches, according to the weather underground report. We’re catching up, but still only about half way to the average rainfall for this area by mid-August. Let it rain!
