What a wonderful thing. Rain!
October is bringing us some wonderful rain. It started raining Saturday morning.
I don my rain jacket and go out and manage the rain barrels throughout the day. I don’t have an overflow system on my tanks so I manage it if I am home by attaching garden hoses to them and opening up the faucets to let the water go on a tree that needs the water desperately. I watch the rain and the tank level, opening and closing as the rain slows so our tanks stay topped off.
I have found myself just standing out in the yard just watching the rain, with water dripping off the brim of my hat.
I woke up several times throughout the night and heard the rain. What a wonderful sound.
I went out to check the rain gauge this morning and found it it was just shy of 3 inches. While I was out there it started raining again and the rain gauge is now up to 3 inches.
That is a nice Texas-sizes rain and luckily it spread itself over a 24 hour period instead of being a gully washer like it is most of the time.
Let the weeding begin (I sure haven’t missed that this summer without rain)
