7:00 am- i woke up at 4:00 am to see that I had received only .04″ of rain. Nothing to get excited about. Went back to sleep around 5:00, and still nothing significant. At 6:30, a decent hour, I woke to see it was “raining cats and dogs” per my gauge, and noted I had received .55″! Now THAT is something to get excited about, but it gets even better. Now, a 1/2 hour later, my gauge reads .75! When I read Pam Cromie’s FB post about hoping for 2″, I thought, yeah, right. Now, I think it is possible. enjoy, enjoy! I am going to build a fire, as it is a tad chilly.
