Rain Gauge Report 2010 08 13

.55" of rain in the gauge.

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

We had a thunderstorm overnight.  So glad for the rain but there was a casualty.
The very tall sunflower that I just posted about (took the photo Thursday afternoon) came down in the wind.

I guess it had its moment.

  1. Alas, no rain on this part of the prairie and even the herbs are looking a little worse for the heat! Even the heat loving basil! Watering as I write!

  2. It looks so sad. :((
    Rain, what is that? We haven't had a lick since the end of June and likely will not again until September as is our summer norm.
    Happy to know someone has it. Have a wonderful weekend, GSS.

  3. Our weather is calling for 30% chance the next few days--unfortunately we are headed to the lake in OK for the weekend--would so love to stay and watch it rain!! Hope it pans out for us--glad you got a supply!!

  4. I need to get a rain barrel. I have been looking at different kinds, just haven't found the one I like yet. We had bad weather last night and 3" of rain. Have a great weekend.

    Hope your herbs perked up!

    My goodness, you are in a dry spell. Hope the garden hangs on.

    Hope you got some rain too.

    Rain barrels are great. I started with an unused trash can and dipped it out with a bucket. It just progressed.
