These past 24 hours, we were projected to have 70 per cent chance of rain. Yes, we have had rain. It was been a dark, dreary day almost like walking through a cloud. We did have a shower early this morning, but it did not last long. Our official rain gauge (which is a pottery cup) showed about 1/4 inch. Rain is still possible for this evening.
Gee whiz, do we need rain. The cool and moist day has been a respite and we are grateful for what we have received, but we do indeed need more.
