We don’t have a rain gauge in the traditional sense... it’s just a case of how many meters horizontally the water reaches up the slightly sloping front yard... ~4 hours rain tonight resulted in about four meters, I’d guess it’s between 30 and 50cm deep at the low (ground) end...

Currently on 3rd day with rain. The lake in the front yard isn't getting any smaller (it didn't help that a fuckup by contractors working on the road meant the mains water pre-flooded it and thus the ground was saturated before it rained). I guess the wet season is here.

Congrats on the lakefront property!

Over here the rain has stopped for now, clear skies since yesterday evening. 17°C/63°F outside, getting warmer again each day according to forecasts. Life is good.

Could really use some of your guys' rain here in CA, we are in a pretty severe drought right now and the fire season is in full swing (technically it's year round now). It's supposed to be 106 F tomorrow and it's still only May.

Well the other end of the property is a canal so we'll probably have a private island soon.

We're expecting 38c (~100 f) later this week, and that doesn't really mean it isn't going to rain either.

What, and miss out on random green stuff like this?

I’m enjoying the current weather and not thinking about the coming hurricane season. It’s been a full week without rain and it’s been a really nice change for the rainiest city in the country. Everything is happy. Just look at this!

Couple days ago the region here saw temps in the 80s. Last night, the 30s.

Thank you CANADA.... get a grip already!

I guess last Monday was true Spring, then we leaped into Summer and back to Winter in three days.

Things have changed here in England. Sun and clear skies for most of the day. Apparently it'll be this way for weeks, so I hope to head down to my fave spot and maybe take some photos. Might see some horses.

So yesterday was a return of the rain, but it seems to have been just a day of it, as it's pretty nice out there today. Bit cooler but that's fine by me!

Still waiting for the impromptu pond formed in #341 to dissipate. It's back to just very muddy ground at the highest end, but the 'deep' end near the font fence is still pretty deep, and we're forecast for possible thunderstorms for the next 10 days.

Sunny. 25°C/77°F.

Forecasts squawk rain and thunder for tomorrow. My nose tells me differently, Thor intends to grace us with a visit today.

All I know is that I saw exactly one bolt of lightning last night. Hardly the storm that was predicted.

That’s the Green New Deal. Or the Pride Month. Or the vaccine. Or something. Not enough coal or masculinity to power proper lightning.

I'll burn tires in my backyard to appease the Thunder Gods then!

FORGIVE US, OH LORDS OF THE TUMULTOUS SKIES, FOR OUR NEWFOUND RELIANCE UPON WUSSIE SOURCES OF ENERGY!

Here the TL;DR comes down to imma gonna get up by four a.m. for a one-hour attempt at skywatching...? :unsure:

From the forecast:
Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before 2am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rain. Patchy fog before 4am, then patchy fog after 5am. Otherwise, cloudy, with a low around 66. Calm wind becoming south around 5 mph.
