We received some much needed rain this week but how much? Thursday morning Murph came in and said he had .24" at his house just off Franklin St. We had .02" It rained off and on all day Thursday (had to it was Ladies Day right?) and so we compared notes on Friday morning. He received another .45" for a total of .69" We had .14" for a total of .16". We went back and forth about who was right and whether we each had the gauge in a proper location. The fact is that we have two here: one connected to the weather station on top of the gazebo (which is very accurate measuring to 1/10ths), and the other by the fuel pumps. I checked in with a land owner by the third green who I know has a rain gauge and they received .5". So the top side of the property received somewhere around .5" and the lower side less than half of that? How's that for consistency? I actually attempted to water just the lower half of the property last night for the first time ever.
Hard to believe June is almost over. Here's to a peaceful summer and more consistent rains.
