After the Rain

It started raining here about noon on Saturday and didn't stop till around 7 am on Sunday.  A bit of wind, a bit of thunder and lightening, but most of all rain.  Before it was over we had gotten around 4 1/4 inches of rain.  We needed it badly and it didn't fall too hard so we're pleased.  As soon as everything dries a bit I'll be out in the garden.
We're supposed to have windy days this week, very March like, very spring like.  They're saying more rain by the end of the week, but only a slight chance, hope things calm down for everyone.


  1. How nice for the thirsty ground to get a long slow drink!

  2. That's a lot of rain in such a short time! A lot of the UK is in drought conditions as we've had a very dry winter. Here we aren't too bad but East Anglia and the south east already have drought orders in place.
    No real March winds here so far but there's plenty of time yet:)
