It's been raining pretty much constantly here. With drenching downpours. 1.60" in the last 24 hours. My rain gauge only records for a 24 hour window, so I have no idea what the total accumulation has been over the past few days.

July was below normal on rain in my area by 2". So far this month 1.90" so a good start so far. We go back to a southeast windflow for the first time this summer starting today.

What sort of rain gauge/weather station are you using? I would like to find something a bit more comprehensive than what I now have.

We had a short period of very heavy rain around 3:00 am or so last night.

I just use a glass type rain gauge. Them one's that have reads out don't seem to last long.

Yeah, I've read quite a few reviews on them that agree with you. Perhaps I should just buy one from Home Depot, use it for 11 months, then return it and buy another one. Repeat as needed.

Is everyone enjoying the "cold front" that came through?

What cold front? Connie and I went to St. George Island today and it got to 91 degrees according to the thermometer on the Jeep. Interesting to note that the winds were coming out of the north when we first got there, but quickly swung around to where they were coming out of the south when we left there.

Of course, it was 72 degrees out when we got up around 8:30am, so maybe that was the cold front?

For the past week I've been seeing a few love bugs near the interstate. Not sure if it's because of all the rain we've had or maybe an early Fall? I can hope! Usually don't see them this early.
