OMG, rain!

Before today we only had like 0.20" of rain for this area (in spite of the flooding that other LJ friends in the US are experiencing). That all changed this morning. At 0430 it started to trickle and then it poured for nearly 90 minutes--fabulous. There were a few close lightning strikes, but nothing earth shaking here.

As soon as I got up I checked what my home weather station recorded--2.06"! That was welcome relief. When I looked at the radar history it's clear I was very lucky as it was just a thin trail of thunderstorms that went through my neighborhood.

I even pulled up the "total precipitation" map and this shows how isolated it was...

It was awesome to wake up to heavy rain at 0500 today!
Thanks for the accurate local rainfall measurement. We sorely needed that rain - maybe the lawn will have a chance to recover if this keeps up...
