Rain gauges don't lie

The rain from the massive cold front started Friday around 10 p.m. and lasted until noon today. That's 38 hours of rain. While it may have been a drizzle at times, I never saw that it had stopped raining. Yet, both my rain gauges show only 1/3 inch of rain. I never knew it could rain so long yet so little.

My grass seed and freshly prepared garden areas needed the rain badly, but there's good news. The 300 pounds of grass seed I planted 18 days ago is starting to emerge in spots.

The warmer weather expected this week should help push the shoots on up.

When I complain about mowing in August, remind me how badly I wanted to see the grass in March.
