Niiice. It's been raining lightly all afternoon off and on, and now it's been raining gently for some time. So, the light rain was absorbed and the heavier stuff isn't running off now. It's even raining enough to wash out my DirecTV signal. A minor irritant I'm more than willing to endure!
I don't know if this rain is too late for the wheat - I suspect we'll all see some significant drought loss regardless, but this will help the pastures and the summer fallow. The irrigaters will get a breather running their pumps.
There will be a lot of people sleeping better around here tonight.
