It is so much easier when water falls from the sky all over my gardens and the meadow and the woods. Easier than hand watering for hours which only dampens the soil about a quarter inch down in a small area.
A 60% possibility of some thunderstorms was predicted for this morning, but all summer "possibility" has meant "no rain" and "thunderstorms" meant only rumbles and wind but no moisture.
Early this morning we got an inch and a quarter of rain. A deep steady soaking for everything.
It was unexpected but very welcome.
As I have my coffee and breakfast it is gloomy and dark, but so beautifully, wonderfully wet.
