I got my rain gauge mounted last week, just in time to measure 3.5 inches of rain. I had hoped for little rain on my newly tilled and planted rows. After 3.5 inches I only hoped the seeds might still be in the near vicinity of where they were planted. It was tough on them for sure, and on the new rows as well.
Last night, today, and tonight I suspect we will be well over 2 inches, many more.
I sure hope this is not the beginning of another year like last year, when over the 3 months we call winter, we got as much rain as an average whole year total.
Oh, our nomadic skunk was back. Smelled so strong when I opened the front door, I feared he might be under the front porch. Needless to say, I didn't stick my head under to look. Anyway, I call it nomadic because I only smell it every 2 or 3 months. Then its gone again.
