A wet weather report.

Jill and Paul Weaver sitting on a fence, 28 January 2017
Sitting on a fence two sunsets ago..

It rained all day yesterday, and apparently it's going to be more of the same sort of drizzle all day today. At 7am this morning the automatic rain gauge in our backyard which resets at noon every day had registered 11mm since yesterday. This is going to be very good for our geraniums but bodes ill for our grapes. The extra water may make them split and the inevitable high humidity and return to normal mid-summer service when the rain ends may well encourage mildew to appear on the fruit. There has been little wind accompanying the rain which is drifting down to us from what was almost a cyclone in the northwest. The photo of Jill and me was taken two sunsets ago when summer was still with us.
