Drought 0, Rain 1
Posted on 27 Aug ’08 by Earl
Yesterday and last night have brought heavy bands of rain from the remains of tropical storm Fay northeast across our area in North Carolina.
This rain is wonderful in helping to break the extreme drought but the ground has been dry for so long it’s slow to absorb water. Heavy rains can quickly become flash flooding.
The rain gauge in our yard captured 5 and 2 tenths of an inch prior to overflowing sometime during the night.
It seems like forever since we’ve had a whole day/night of near constant rain.
