Yeah, the gloom and doom presentation keeps the weatherguessers energized! But, a WHOLE bunch of people got 2-4 inches of rain in as many hours last night

Can you throw some raw potatoes into the pool to draw the salt out?

...and before you throw said potatoes at my head I will tell you I have witnessed a giant pot of crazy over-salted (inedible) beef goulash salvaged by throwing in a couple peeled raw potatoes.

I'm thinking 60 lbs of potatoes in your pool should do it!

Please take pics.

The empty flat pan in my chicken coop says we got about three inches in West Oak Hill. And yet today my area-that-used-to-be-known-as-the-lawn-before-we-gave-up-on-it-and-now-looks-like-a-dry-lake-bed STILL looks ... like a dry lake bed.

I know I'm tempting fate with this statement, but there just doesn't seem to be enough rain to get back to where we once belonged.
