1.15 inches yesterday! Now that's what I'm talking about! A decent rain! Look how much dirt got flung into the gauge, too! We weren't home at the time, but from where the leftover debris stands, it flooded nearly to the door.

We're still in the "extreme" drought category, where we have been since March. One new fire started in a mountain range to the east of us this week, caused by lightning. No new fires close to home though, thank goodness.
Please accept my injection of hope, all of you out there enduring extreme heat and exceptional drought conditions! I hope the Fall and Winter bring us all moisture!
