The Rains Return

After not receiving any rain for over two months, I awoke at 4:30 AM this morning to the sound of pouring rain. It is now just past noon, and the rain has slowed to steady showers. While this has put a serious damper - no pun intended- on many holiday weekend festivities and plans, the rain is much needed. When I checked the rain gauge this morning it was full to just over the 2 inch mark! That will really help put some significant moisture back into the earth.
