We ended up getting a quarter inch of rain late Wednesday, and then another quarter inch of rain late yesterday as the bigger, wetter system slid all around us to the north and south. At times Hartford got a lot of rain and the Litchfield hills at the same time, but we were constantly in that weird open bubble of clear sky.
But I will take it. A half inch combined, and everything looks so refreshed.
Jim saw the first hummingbird of the season today at our feeder!
