After Tropical Storm Fay, back in early September, we haven't had a drop of rain. It's a normally dry time of the year, so not surprising, but still unsettling.
Thankfully, today we've had steady on and off rainshowers, and it's raining heavily now. The 'puddle' at the base of the driveway is full -- hooray!*
Coming home, the dogwood in front of the house looked perfect, with fall-tinged color.
*An addendum: it rained 2.4 inches, and more to come today...
