This is unbelievable! The weather forecast was for "scattered thunderstorms" all day long, something like 20% chance. Well, three hours ago, it began raining, and I'm guessing that the 20% is parked right over my house! It has let up a few times to a drizzle, but it hasn't quit. Thankfully, most of it is a good soaking rain, so it is very beneficial. I haven't seen any runoff. whew. The rain gauge has about .3 inch. 3/10 of an inch rain ÷ 3 hours = soaking all my plants. Yesssssssssssssss.
The best things is that it isn't thundering any more. When it first began, jazi, who is afraid of thunder was a quivering mess. Now that it is merely raining, she is fine. Poor girl.
Now the weather report says we are going to be at 40% to 65% chance of rain and storms from now, all through the night. I hope I don't float away!
