Last night I think I heard the forcaster say in the last 24 hour period. Jan 8 and 9th that we recieved more rain in our area than we had the last 3 months. We did get some decent rain around new years too. This was a solid soaking rain.

I'm in SW ohio as well, just north of cincy. 2012 saw lawns that weren't visited for weeks on end. I lost thousands, to put it bluntly. When things go dormant, well, you tend to lose the motivation along with it. The drought even impacted the fall leaf cleanup-volume was down by 30-40%. Here's hoping for a better 2013!

Were you one of the lucky ones that go around 3"? It is showing we got .96, but anything is better than nothing. Now I wish we could get a couple inches of hard rain to help fill the stock tanks up.

I suspect we got 3 inches or so. The low spots in my yard are still holding water.

psh. i saw an article recently that said we need 150" of snow this winter (thats not a typo) to be back to where we were pre-drought conditions. We have had about 2" of snow this winter and supposed to get about 1" of rain today.
