Rain: Finally Something Worthy of the Name (February 2, 2014)
Last night and today we finally had a little rain--the first of substance in many weeks. At my house, we got 0.7 inches. That's not enough on its own to make a big difference, but any amount is welcome at this stage. Today's precipitation follows 0.05 inches a few days earlier--an almost negligible sprinkle. Still, the recent rain brings our total for the 2013-2014 rain year to 3.60 inches, which is an improvement, although that still leaves us 17.8 inches below normal for this time of year (21.43 inches). We desperately need more.
