    So much for the drought. We were way above average rainfall for July and then today we got over 5" of rain. Rather than dust, we now have mud.

    We had a nice soft rain today which we needed, 5 inches of rain would put the brook at some nice levels. !!!

    We got hammered over here also Dennis, just a steady rain for about 24 hours. Not sure how much though.

    I'm hoping it stays dry here so there is no mud in the woods this fall.

    We had that Derecho June 29 and it has been thunder and lightning daily since then. Even when the rain squeaks past us the storm show is around. For two months they came from the Northwest and now they have started coming from the Southwest.

    Wish they would quit for a few days before the first hurricane cranks up. :confused:

    This is how our dry spell last summer ended. Two mornings in a row, back to back 4" rainfalls from storms. IMG_20110729_081513.jpg

    Not complaining about the lack of mosquitoes, and I have saved a ton on mower gas, but an inch every day for a week would be fine. Another couple of weeks and it won't matter, but at this point some soybeans could benefit.

    We were blessed with another inch of rain today. Looks like it is finally done though.

    Quick hitters again today, all the heavy rains went north and south of us again. Still muggy out, I can't wait until fall weather moves in.
