    We need a whole lot more. NJ is down like 15 or 18 inches of rain. A big resevoir near where I live is at 32% capacity...it looks more like a huge mud puddle than a resevoir. I just hope it comes (and soon) too.

    not far from you here in PA we've gotten a couple of inches recently...literally a drop in the bucket compared to what we need to erase the drought emergency....we need 5 to 10 inches more just to get things where we need them b4 heading into the dry season...if we dont get it, its really scary...for alot of reasons..not the least ofwhich some water companies will literally run out of water...water compaineshere in PA are starting to talk about rationing rules of theri own...we have never had that happen

    parts of maryland have been getting rain for several days but it still has only been a little over an inch of total rainfall. the governor was supposed to issue some sort of water restriction today but i heard on the news this morning he has decided to postpone. not sure exactly what the story is. it is never good going into the warmer months a foot low from where your normal rainfalls are.

    We are way below what we need here too. Today we got about 2 inches of snow which helps, but not really. It's raining outside right now. I am worried though that with the wide variety of temperature changes we are having now that we may see some chilling injury this spring in plants.

    Last year was the 3rd most rain for us in recorded history. This year so far has been very wet. Yesterday alone we were getting 1" every hour. It has rained like that since friday night.
