Rain.

Doppler radar estimated between four and five inches of rain between Salisbury and Granite Quarry...in Rowan County. Near Harrisburg in Cabarrus County, over three inches of rain fell last night...up to four inches in the Roberta Mill area. In the past 24 hours, up to six inches of rain was estimated in parts of Guilford, Forsyth, and Davidson counties.---Larry Sprinkle WCNC NewsChannel 36.

I'd say we got at least 3 inches. It started about 8pm and sputtered until 10 when the bottom fell out. It's been over a week since it rained. You can't tell from the picture. I need more of these agastache on the right for the backyard. Huge plants. 4-5' tall, just as round. I wish I knew the variety. Huge.



It's 72 degrees. I opened the windows last night. The humidity is climbing. The sun is beating away the last of the cloud. It's only going to be 90 today instead of the 98 we saw yesterday. I've got two days of floating on Badin Lake planned.

We have been getting some much needed rain around here too. Enjoy your leisure time.

Good morning Tom ~ We've been getting welcome rain finally, and are definitely having more than enough heat and humidity. With the rain, we'll soon be living in a jungle. :-) No complaining though, we were in desperate need as we were in extreme drought conditions.

Have a great time at the lake.

We've had decent rain this year. A few days ago I began hoping it would rain soon. I didn't even mind having to work in it last night for a short period. It was refreshing.

Tom,

Two days in Badin Lake sounds great! WE got a bit of rain not as much as you did. It surely would have filled my 300 gallon rain barrel if I'd had the plumbing hooked up. Our rain chains are due to come tomorrow.
