I think I got my rain gauge working. Had to clean some sand out of it again. So I put it on a flat piece of styrofoam to try to keep sand from splashing up into it during heavy rains. Seems to be working. Got 0.93 inch of rain so far today. Maybe I should put a post in the ground and mount it on top of that.

Might as well put the vettes in mothballs. Road never got smoothed out since the last big rain storm we had and even a friend who stopped over here yesterday in his pickup truck commented that the road was murder driving on. I don't imagine the rain today is going to make matters any better. Not for a while, anyway.

Looks like more rain for us Thurs and a spell of colder days. Still no crazy low temps yet this year.

Yeah, looks like rain on the way here by this evening. Pretty windy. Had to clean up some tree branches laying in the driveway.

Low temps overnight starting Thursday night and extending through the weekend.

People keep on talking about taking all these expensive and painful measures to try to combat "global warming". I don't see the need. Now if they were talking about "global burning", well yeah, then you got something to be worried about.

We got 1.28 inches of rain here. Once it started raining, it seemed like it was never going to stop. Heard a few rumbles of thunder, but nothing sounded close.

Now come clear and cooler weather will be setting in. Low 30s overnights.

Hmm, the forecast for Tuesday night is rain, with a low temp of 28 degrees.

What is wrong with that picture?

Yeah, and that snow shovel I brought down when we moved from Maryland might come in handy on Wednesday.
