Today we awoke to over an inch of rain and then it rained all day. Right now, please don't go around saying things like "at least it is good for the farmers" because it isn't. The farmers, including us, need the ground to dry out so we can prepare the soil and plant. Then after the planting is done, the rain is wanted (but not too much and not all at once). Wait til we are in the middle of a drought and then when it rains say, "well, we sure needed that one." Not now. It sure did make the grass green up though.
