From 100% to 50%

Well, the 100% chance didn't last very long...latest, updated forecast calls for a 50% chance...the rest of the week looks fantastic.

Not too much rain in the ol' bucket today...my CoCoRaHS station (TN-PM-5) here at home says we're now at 4.09" for the month of July!.....

**personal note on this one, my bride and I had only been married about 17 days and lived in a home on a big hill with a great view to the west...we HEARD the winds rushing through the trees toward us...as soon as I heard this, I ordered my new bride and 10 year-old daughter down the stairs into the basement.....it was a sound that I'll NEVER, EVER forget**
