For those who want a quick follow up.
It rained this morning! Don't know how much as of yet, but looks like at least 1/2 inch and maybe as much as 3/4 inch according the puddles in the drive (our informal method for measuring). We'll check the rain gauge later.
Looks like we will get treated to some of the standard August heat and humidity for the weekend. I wonder how well T & I will stand up to that as we work in the fields tomorrow?
