When It Rained, It Poured

We need the rain. Goodness knows we do. The lakes, creeks, rivers, and ponds all show the lack of it we have had for months on end. I don't know that the amount we got this week was actually predicted though. At school, S's kindergartners faithfully keep record of all rain in our rain gauge outside our classroom. They are used to half an inch or less. When they came in Friday morning and found the gauge overflowing at 5 inches from the day before, they were beside themselves. Supposedly, we had 6 inches in less than 24 hours. At our house, we opted for a new rain gauge. This was all collected in one week.

Wow! Every time I looked at radar, it seemed, for about 48 hours it was raining or about to rain up in Tallahassee. Watch out for a skeetery Spring!
