I looked at the radar last night and thought "the rain will probably go north of us or dissipate as it has done all year" but (drum roll) it didn't!! We received nearly 9/10" of rain early this morning. It's 54F right now after a low of 49F. The forecast calls for the temps to get back up in the upper 80s and low 90s starting tomorrow.
You would have thought our town was made up of lunatics today as we all called out to each other "how much did you get". Ah, it wasn't enough to break our horrible drought, but it sure lifted up many a spirit. We've received just a little over 3" of moisture since last October. Maybe the weather pattern is finally changing.
