    the 3.58 inches of rain last night. You can see in pic 5936 what the brook was like before the rain, hardly any movement.

    Looks like you needed that rain....the creeks around here finally have a little in them but most are still not running at all.

    One of these years I'll mark the bigger rocks and do the raft thing.

    Looks like you got a pile of rain, the majority of it missed us. We had a brief soaker and some scattered showers, but no deluge. Sux when it all come at once, but when you need rain, you take what you get!

    shadow&flame, they are saying another 1.7 inches of rain on the way which is a good thing. When I took a ride through the woods last night, the trails are still bone dry except for one low area.

    Hearth.com Members, seems like this summer the big storms or rain have missed us so this was welcomed. I'm thinking this winter we will get pounded with snow.

    In the first pic, if you walked out of the bottom right of the picture it dropped into a nice fishing/swimming hole of 3.5 feet.

    As long as it doesn't all come in one or two or three storms I could live with that!

    True . . . my Dad used to tell stories about how in Basic Training in Georgia back in the late 60s there was a snow storm and they pressed any of the northern Yankees who could run a plow or grader into service plowing the roads.

    Zap, I'm wondering how the trails are on the hills after that much rain? Especially that one steep one.

    I sure believe it...it gets messy when the snow flies here. We dont have anything other than wet snow with ice under it...

    I'll find out this weekend, the one steep hill we went up has been left alone since spring, the trail going to up top should be okay other then the damage that was done by running up and down.
