We’ve been suffering this year with one of the worst droughts I can remember. So, normally this much rain in a two day period would not be welcome, especially at Thanksgiving time with many people out and about.
But we’re not complaining! I’m calling it 4.2 inches of rain in 48 hours. That still leaves us a whopping 12 inches below normal for the year. Though it came too late to help much of this year’s crops, the rain will surely start to replenish the ground supply for next year. And I think I heard many trees and shrubs breathing a sigh of relief!
It cleared off today and the weather turned colder as a cold front went through the area. It was a frosty 24F this morning as shoppers hit the stores in a Black Friday feeding frenzy.
No shopping for us. My wife and I spent the day at home, cooking and relaxing. The cats just relaxed!
I bet sid was more then willing to help you eat some of that cooking! He looks like a contented cat.
We got rain today too, which was very welcomed here as well!
I think Sidd has the right idea!
We seem to have had an excess of rain this year already. I’m glad, as I’m sure is your garden, that you’ve finally had a good replenishing rainfall though. Hopefully you’ll catch up through winter. I see you’re reading Reinhart’s BBA…one of my most favorite bread books…the cinnamon rolls are AMAZING 😛
The cinnamon bread recipe sounds good also. I’m a sucker for anything with cinnamon!
