Lots of rain

We were still behind a bit on rainfall for this year, but should be caught up now, thanks to the remnants of Ida. Our rain gauge measured 4 1/2 inches, but we probably got more, since its location is buffered by the holly hedge.

One of my colleages who lives in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Escarpment (a much heavier rainfall zone) said that they had 8 1/2 inches in 24 hours.

I'm doing a Nature Discovery Walk, focused on seasonal ecology tomorrow -- lots to observe and talk about.

  3. We are getting the rain and tides from that storm. Awaiting the high tide at 5 am, then each sucessive high tide through Friday...word is it could be like Isabel, which flooded our house.
    I look forward to being in SC!! Glad you are getting some rainfall. I would love to join one of your tours too.

  4. Due to rain very heavy in Chicagoland this upcoming weekend. Fortunately I got all the garden close-down issues completely taken care of.

    Good luck with your event. :-)

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
