.12 inches in my rain gauge. I was just on the western edge of the rain moving up from the south and, YA! humidity is back as well as dew points are back up.

Looks like 5/8 of an inch at my house last night. I have a big rain gage in my front yard. Today is 85 and sticky.

No rain here since october. Most lawns really could be cut every 3 weeks instead of 2. Now these warmer temps are bringing in weed growth.

Finally! Getting a little rain up here in NC FL today.

Glad to see it, just need some cooler weather now to keep the weeds from taking off. Mulching leaves tomorrow with a lot less dust ball!

This warmer temp must drive the pest/ fert and squirt guys crazy. I am seeing weeds everywhere. I can see the calls coming in now.

Yuck! No real rain, but these have been the most uncomfortable few days I can ever recall in December.
