Several times in the last month I’ve watched on radar as storms in the area figured out all sorts of clever ways to miss me. They’d be headed straight at me, then fork into two so that one could miss me to the north, the other to the south. Or a storm would be headed my way, then suddenly peter out a couple of miles away. One storm was so strong and so close that it knocked out my electricity, though I didn’t get a drop of rain.

But last night I was in the nexus of two good-size storms which hit pretty hard, leaving 1.3 inches of rain. This will save an awful lot of growing things. Even some young trees, native species, had started to wilt in the dry heat. There’s a 60 percent chance of rain today and tonight. With luck, maybe more rain will fall.
