With the rain gone, we get a peek at blue skies

It is hard to believe that we got 8.3 inches of rain yesterday from 5 AM until midnight.

Our ditches were running full, but the culverts seemed to handle all the water.

With that much rain coming out of the sky, I doubt that we will have to worry about watering the yard again this year.

The centipede grass will start to slow down with fall anyway

It was a relief to see some blue skies this morning even if they only hung around for a few minutes.

It appears the storm has headed slowly north so we can focus on drying out and getting on with the rest of our beach season.

So how much rain did you have at your place?
