The Results Are In
Rainfall totals at LMAID World Headquarters came to about 4.25 inches! (Counting last Friday's rain, we got 5 inches exactly for the week.) Contrast that with 5.5 inches in the last four-plus months, and you see why we are all so excited.
The rains didn't solve the drought problem by any means. The lakes are still very low, and the winter is forecast to be dry, so it's too soon to be "dancing in the end zone." It would take 2 or 3 more storms like this one to get us where we need to be, so if you're in Greensboro and reading this, take quick showers and don't be playing in the hose! (And quit worrying about your grass!)
Speaking of grass, guess what I did today. (Hint: the ground was soft and easy to dig in.) Stay tuned for Sunday's post.
