Earl was a disappointment

Yesterday: Hurricane Earl passed by.  Today: humidity broke, it's very breezy and cool, high 70s and low 80s but very comfortable.

Earl was a bust.  I didn't want any wind, and it was predicted to slide by to our east without any gale force winds over us.  But I expected rain.... we need it so badly.  Believe it or not, it rained in Hartford, and it rained east of the river, but we got nothing.  Nada, zip, not a drop!  The edge of the circular storm was literally less than 10 miles from us.

We had not even a breath of air, no breeze, no sprinkles.

Today it's clear and sunny and I watered everything I could get on the back hill, and in the yard.  Last rain was an inch and a half 13 days ago, on August 22.
