It's been raining for four days (6WS)


Not that I'm complaining, mind  you;  the wood is under cover,  the windows are all cleaned, puttied  and painted and sealed against winter, and it's supposed to rain later today. Again.  

I think this qualifies as the fall rains,  and while it won't alleviate the drought overnight, it goes a long way  to helping.

  1. And yet another wet one in store. NOAA says maaaaaaybe Monday will be partly sunny....but then back into the showers, boys.

  2. Yep, we had one of those fire in the sky sunrises, rain on the way later, I'd guess.

    I remember the year it rained for 11 days straight, there was seditious talk around town about Red Hayes building an ark in his barn...

  4. well, this is normal. I don't mind at all. (It does seem the pendulum is out of kilter a bit, though. )

  6. I will have to call a halt to the proceedings, however, when the stone bridge at the end of our road becomes the swamp across the road. We do have a limit, here.

  8. I suspect that may be so, except here in New England we are usually well past the color stage by now, and heavily into the fallen leaves part of things.
    Im always amused at the tap dancing weathermen practice when it comes to 'predicting' when the leaves will change and why. Some will say cool nights and warm days, some say cool days and colder nights, others insist you have to have a frost.

    And it's really only in the last few weeks that we've had any rain at all.

    (In other words, I haven't a clue either)

    I think the real answer is, 'when they're damned good and ready')

  9. Here in the Midwest the farmers would be shaking their fists at the rain. They are trying to get in their crops.

  10. yep, it never rains when it's supposed to, and never stops when you need the extra space. I know, I know. My dad had a blueberry farm when I was a kid, and we spent half the time hoping for rain and the other half hoping it wouldn't.

    Which is one major reason why we aren't into agriculture here, it's a killer.
