Some welcome rain.

During the night we had quite an amount of rain, in fact the only substantial amount since February although having said that if we have any amount of warm weather it will soon dry up as the ground is parched. I don't often bother with weather forecasts so it was quite by chance that I took the pictures below last night whilst walking the dogs. I was going to show how dry it is and the effect it is having on the sugar beet crop but I think the rain last night will have done it a power of good.

I am glad you got some rain there. It is really needed here right now. I think the east coast will get a pretty good soaking from hurricane Irene but that won't help us in the midwest.

We are drowning here, with a hurricane on the way. Wish I could send you some.

Those beets definitely look unhappy. I'm glad you got some rain. Still waiting for a good soaker. Lately all we get is a very rare occasional 10 minute light rain.

We had a little rain two nights ago. Love it when it washes some of the summer dust away.
