    After almost 5 weeks of no appreciable rain it started to rain on Saturday. Forecasters are calling for rain today and again on Monday. My properties sure do need the rain and I would like the income. Thanks to the powers that be! :angel:

    With little rainfall in the last few years, we started getting pretty regular rains in June. It really has helped.

    Has much of Virginia been really dry? In route to Pennsylvania last weekend, we hit some really heavy rain between Harrisonburg and Winchester.

    Yesturday I'm watching the news and seeing rain in southern Maryland and nothing here in Carroll county. It FINALLY started coming down about 5:30 - 6:00. It was a slow steady drizzle that lasted a couple of hours... Thank God!

    It just started raining again today 10 minutes ago... Looks like we're back in business!

    We have had the rain this year. 13 days in July and every day last week. Last year was drought city and this year has been so wet you can't keep up with your work load.

    Keep the faith, the rain will return. It only took 3 years for it to come back to us.:angel:
