Not so much rain from Isaac around Chicago, just about 1/4 inch, but we've had enough from other events that we're back to D0.

In the past we have had hurricane events stretch into Michigan, but what you need is a hurricane moving with good speed. This one was quite slow, stalled over the South, and we saw nothing. Still, there have been a few showers, I had to water only once last week, and stuff is growing. We are going to get a line of T-storms tomorrow night, that will drop the highs to around 70, probably to stay.

Mild Winter, rain once every 8-10 days all Spring & Summer, a cool Fall. If this keep up I may quit my job & sale vegetable on the side of the road.

I think the rain we've been getting has all been attributed to Isaac, most of the past week has been rainy, tomatoes all splitting and rotting, beans are way too mature for eating green, and the grass has gotten out of control. Might be time for a break and till it all in come October!
