Rain Gauge Report 2010 05 25

.45" of rain in the gauge.

Rain Barrel Status
1st rain barrel is full.
2nd rain barrel is full.
3rd rain barrel is more than three quarters full.

A thunderstorm came through Monday evening and then a downpour occured in the middle of the night. The rain barrels should all be full, but the little blooms from the locust tree washed down onto the screen where the water pours into the first rain barrel and blocked a lot of the opening.  I'm guessing water poured over the first rain barrel without going in.  We had used most of the water from the 3rd rain barrel before this rain.

  1. No rain here but hoping for a thunderstorm today. Still haven't done my rain barrels. Sigh.
