Rainstorm extraordinaire

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

For the last week, we’ve been watching a prediction of rain in the forecast:

It seemed like a solid prediction, but we’ve seen rain predictions fizzle before, so we didn’t want to get our hopes up. We could use the moisture.

Well, those predictions turned out to be dead-on accurate. The rain moved in around 9 o’clock last night, and lasted a good solid 13 hours. It didn’t stop raining until about 10 o’clock this morning.

This morning the grasses were bent over from the relentless downpour.

The maple leaves were similarly bowed.

Every fence line was dripping.

So were porch rails.

We still have some blueberry plants potted on the deck. No need to water them!

The rain kicked up mist, which crept all around.

Altogether we got about 1.25 inches of rain.

I know good hard soakings like this aren’t likely to be very common for the next few months, so we enjoyed it while we could.
