Last Saturday (Jan 28) we had just about 1.5 inches of rain and it was wonderful. No drought breaker but it was nice. After that the weather people stated that they didn't see anymore rain in our future, at least for the next 7-10 days, since February is typically one of our dryer months. Heck, the last 10 months have been dryer than the normal February.
They did forecast a cool front to come thru last night, dropping the temps from the 70's(f) down to the 40-50's(f) for today but any rain that came with it would be well to our south and east....we would remain dry.
Last night I needed my hubbys muscles and pickup truck for a trip to Home Depot for mulch, a new rake and a few bits to put together an arbor this weekend. Got the things at the indoor part of the store and headed out to the enclosed but unroofed garden center. Loaded bags of mulch on the cart and I happened to look up to see the sliver of the waxing moon surrounded by a mist. Aha, that means rain within 24 hours.
My hubby works at home two days a week and this week his home days are Thurs and Friday. So this morning when he got up he heard it and immediately woke me since he knows how much I love to watch it........RAIN!!
The sky is getting lighter now and the rain has almost stopped but my rain gauge out back has just a bit over 1/2 inch in it and I am happy.
