And I am hoping that the sun shines continuosly for 4 weeks. It can rain at night for all I care. Its not exactly a drought!!
yes it is for trees, wildlife and farmers.

At last, 'proper' rain- we need many days of this to have any significant effect.

You DO realize that this "lush green" requires rain to stay green, right?
You're being a little short-sighted here.

Move the green a bit aside and see the huge cracks in the ground everywhere. Soon I'll be placing little poles in them in our garden to avoid the little one breaking a leg in the garden.

Re: Weather!

I have decided to open a plant shop only selling Death Valley cactus. Should be the next craze considering this summer will be a SCORCHER

Re: Weather!

Actually had a bit of rain today; first time in weeks. Nowhere near enough, but it's a start at least. Forecast is for more later this week, but it's been forecast before and never materialised. Hopefully this time it's right!

Re: Weather!

Lovely day today, then we had a good some rain later afternoon.

Sad, but needed for nature- so I am prepared to put up with rain ... for a week or so.

Re: Weather!

I feel like the opposite of most people here: when it is hot and sunny I get grumpy. When I see that there is rain in the forecast, I feel gleeful.

When it actually rains? I feel like my soul has just been hugged.

Re: Weather!

And we have not had one spring day so far-fluffy light clouds driting through the sky with a gentle warm breeze!

Just one month of clear skies and now a few weeks of rain. The weather is crazzzzyyyyy!

Re: Weather!

Along with rain, a pretty drastic temperature drop is anticipated for Monday.

Re: Weather!

Timing of the ice saints seems to be pretty accurate this year.
