Thursday, 7/5/07

This is about how much rain we received today.

We received another one of those just-enough-to-get-the-grass-wet showers this afternoon. It talked about raining for over an hour before the first drops fell. A couple of lightning bolts were close enough that I unplugged the computer, but most of the heavy weather passed to our east. Overcast skies remained after the storm passed. That meant it was cooler and we didn't have to suffer through the steamy heat that would have occurred had the sun returned, but it also meant that the grass stayed wet and we couldn't work in the yard and garden later in the afternoon.
