    How about the rest of you that need it. I hope this helps with the yards. The past couple of days we have some good amounts in different areas of town. Big storm rolled in so we had to stop. We have 3 left to do. Some wicked lighting shows. Hope you all are getting some much needed rain. Temp went from 90 to 73 in less than an hour.

    3/4 of an inch here with an overnight t-storm. Not hardly enough to bring back the dormant turf.

    But I'll take what I can get at this point. We're officially in the moderate drought category.

    1.75 inches here since Tuesday. We are still down 2 for the month of june. Last I looked we were not in any drought category.

    I agree we are not anywhere close enough to bring back that turf. But it is trying to turn green. Suppose to get another line of storms come through around midnight. Looks like they are trying to grow over in Indiana. Time will tell.

    We got alot of rain here yesterday and today, really made the lawns perk up, my yard really greened up just from the little we did get.

    Funny thing was, it was a real bad storm here also and I saw guys cutting in it! Leaving nice muddy tire tracks and clumping real bad, I had to laugh at that one. We haven't had a rained out day all june probably and they feel the need to keep working threw it, 25+ mph winds also.

    We are getting ready to get hit again down here. Storms look pretty wicked on the radar. I finished a lawn today when the storm was knocking the door. Thundering lighting and boy did that yard get done quick.

    Well we didn't get a TON like we needed, but a few righteous T-storms and a couple hour-long drizzlers, kept things wet for a day or two.
    No it isn't enough but Yes, it helped.
