    Re: Rain!!

    It's been over a month since we've had any rain, until a pop-up storm came our way today and gave us a good 15-minute soaking, enough to water the lawn at least.

    Hope you get the rain you need, Tassie!!!

    We aren't no where as bad off as you all but we haven't been getting what we need. We got a nice amount today, I hope you all get the rain you need as well.

    Bah! We've only had a little over 3 inches this season and nornal would be over 15 inches. I can't remember the last time we had significant rain.

    Time to put a brick in the toilet tanks!

    We finally got some rain here (courtesy of Tropical Storm Barry) on Friday. We needed it bad though so I won't complain too much.

    We are DREAMING of getting 20 inches in 18 months. Here in Orange County, I don't think we cracked two inches this year.

    One of our worst drought years on record. Weird that you Aussies would be having the same problem.
