Wet Weather Returns

MORE RAIN EXPECTED: Just over 1/10th of an inch of rain fell overnight and more is expected today through Thursday. For today, rain with a chance of a thundershower or two, high 56°. Rain continuing tonight, low 50°, rain again Thursday with a high of 59°. Can't rule out a possibility of strong weather. Also, most areas will see up to 2" in the rain gauge by Thursday night. We'll see a break in the rain on Friday and Saturday, but rain returns on Saturday night through Sunday with another 1" possible.

Great new Davis Vantage Vue has shipped and I hope to have it operational by this weekend. Will keep everyone in the loop on my progress. By the way, if you're interested, the company name where it was purchased is Scientific Sales. I've been very impressed with their service and follow up.
