    We just got .5" of slow soaking rain. The first decent rain we've had in about 3-4 weeks. I can just hear the grass saying, "Ahhh"!

    We have gotten a lot of small rains here. Most have been between 1/4" and 1/2" and most have come at night. :)

    Last spring was very dry here. We turned on our sprinkler system in mid March which is a first for us. We have a lot of flowers and they came up early since it was so warm and they needed water. Normally we don't even need to turn it on until June around here.

    We aint got nothing. Looks like there is rain scattered all around us. But as usual we get zip. I see it all up there in NC. Whatever happened to the trickle down theory? I cant take another drought year

    9:45 here and its not raining yet, but I sure hope it does we need it! But if you're in Wilson I'd expect it'll be here shortly.
