A rude awakening

Monday, June 22, 2015

At 3 am this morning, I was awakened by a very loud storm.  For about an hour the lightning flashed rapidly and the thunder boomed like it was just outside the window!  During that hour, we received another 1.14″ (29 mm) rain to add to our Hurricane Bill total.  The local radio reported this morning that some areas very near here received 3″ in that storm last night!  Ouch!

We’ll go survey our fields today to begin a plan to reduce the hit from this rainy period.  If it dries out soon enough, replanting the drowned spots will be in order.  Hope we will have that replanting option soon.

C’mon sunshine!

But, you know, in about 10 days of 90s temps, we’ll probably be asking for another rain!   Go figure, huh…
