All of us in this neck of the woods are so happy about this rain!
So far we've had 2" at our house and more expected. We couldn't find our rain gauge (no wonder) so we set a plastic glass on the stair rail to the porch and taped a ruler to it.
I just hope the burned hillsides south of here hold, but they never do when it rains a lot. For right now all this water from the sky is a blessed event!
