Default So much rain!!!

Can you believe how much rain we've received in the last couple of days? I have never before seen so much rain come down so quickly. It is unbelievable.

You guys in Chapel Hill and Durham are getting tons of it huh? Hasn't rained as much in N. Raleigh this week. Got lots more the last few weeks. This should be great for us!! Just bad timing i guess.

Dark skies and a lot of thunder, but it barely sprinkled in Wake Forest today. Maybe next storm.......

It's poured twice today in CH, though the second was much heavier and longer-lasting than the first. I've noticed that most of these storms are small and fast moving, so it's hit-or-miss as to whether a particular area gets any rain. Tonight's were much bigger and more widespread, though, so you folks in North Raleigh should get at least some rain tonight.

Looks like the Southpoint area has been getting slammed all day long.

We may get rain all week long. I actually caught the weatherman saying if all goes well, we may not need the "drought" word again.

I am not holding my breath on that one, but so far so good.

Will my young brown fescue get green again? Does anyone know if it comes back?

^ Fescue usually goes dormant in the hot summer. The roots stay alive...come fall it will bounce back and in the spring it'll look great. Don't worry.

This part of JoCo has been getting a bit wet over the last couple of days, just not enough. The thunder is rumbling now but we are still waiting on the wet stuff....

Alas, the carpet grass really seems to like this weather.

Off to Lowe's to find something to kill the bumper crop that has sprung up in the thin areas created by last year's drought. This week it has grown like kudzu!

Default Durham Rain

Friday & Saturday night we had good soakers in South Durham near Southpoint. My rain barrel is over flowing!! Saturday mid day we drove through Hope Valley and there were lots of limbs down and a few trees had snapped.

I would love it if the water restrictions lifted just enough to fill up the kiddie pool for the kids. Of course, I should have left it out in the rain the last few nights and it would probably be full by now.
