Fall is Here

The weather of late has been very fall-like. The temperature has not risen above 60 degrees since late Friday, the sun has been obscured by thick cloud cover, and it rained for about 36 consecutive hours, beginning Sunday morning and not ending until this evening. The total in my rain gauge was 2.97 inches, and amounts of two to three inches were common. Other area totals include 3.07 inches in Readstown, 2.86 inches in Westby, 2.55 inches in Ontario, and 2.41 inches in Hillsboro. This was a good soaking rain, which should be quite beneficial as we head into the typically drier fall months. It's a good thing this wasn't November or December, or we would likely be shoveling out from several inches of snow. A little too early to think about that yet...
