It's raining up here right now. It's been a while since we've had to water anything. But this is farming country, though most farms here have backup irrigation systems.

We got 1.02" of rain today. Good bit of thunder along with it.

The heavy rain kind of beat down Connie's bigger tomato plants, though. They have outgrown the cages she put around them. Probably should have put some bamboo supports around them too, but I swear, time just gets away from me so fast lately.

We stopped at our usual truck stop in Christiana, Tennessee last night and just before dark a thunderstorm developed and brought extremely heavy winds and rain. So heavy that we lost sight of the trucks parked on the other side of the driveway. We were rocking pretty bad considering there were other trucks parked on both sides of us. It only lasted about 15-20 minutes or so and dissipated. When we woke up this morning and got out of the truck we saw two trees that got blown over about a hundred feet away from where we were parked. Glad we weren't on the highway when this happened!

Wonder if a tornado had a close swipe at you?

Had more rain today. 1.47" all total. Yellow flies are starting to kick up a bit. With this rain, I guess the mosquitos will be joining forces with them shortly.

Not a drop here. Always inland and never on the coast. This how it has been for years.

Yeah, that is kind of strange. But usually this is the dry spell in this area too at this time of year.

Too bad our citrus crop has been pretty much wiped out to take advantage of the rain to produce larger and juicier fruit.

Just barely a sprinkle today.

Rain for May, 2023 = 4.36"

Total rain, so far, for 2023 = 24.48"
