Well, looks like that predicted half of rain was a bit off. We had two lines roll thru about 3-4pm, and that dumped an inch on us. We had a brief reprieve for about an hour, and we're now getting hit with even more over the last hour, and more is still on the way. Wouldn't be surprised if we get another couple inches. We're under a flash flood warning, so it's basically the same as we got three weeks ago, spread out over many hours.
During the break in the rain, I went down to check the corn and bean patch, and it had small rivulets running thru it. The tomato/pepper patch looked OK, just some standing pools.
But, now the corn patch has rivers running thru it, and is washing down the hill like it did last month. Our corn and beans have been up for about a week, so don't know if some won't be washed away. The strawberry patch looks sorry as well, and the other plots are mudpits. I worry about my fruit trees and bushes also.
The only good thing about the weather is that this will clear out tonight, and be nice the rest of the week. This is sooo maddening, I can hardly stand it. Is this is what's in store this summer? Brief periods of nice weather punctuated by the occasional deluge? It seems to do this every summer here. No wonder we can't get decent harvests...
