I woke up this morning and looked at the weather station data, as I usually do... nearly 5 inches of rain in 2017... which wouldn't be all that unusual except that nearly all of it has happened in the last 36 hours.

In fact, the station, which keeps some data stored, like averages over the last 24 hours, etc... reported that the "rain event", as it call it, began over 20 hours earlier.  And that was almost an hour before writing this entry this morning!

I listen to it coming down out there and it sounds like a good, old-fashioned rain storm from my days in the mid-west.  Without the thunder and lightening, of course.  I miss thunderstorms.

Thankfully, it's been above freezing for the last 48 hours or more, and that will translate into fewer dollars spent on propane to heat the trailer.
