On the other hand, the vegetable garden is drowning. Until today, the corn was standing upright, but the wind, combined with saturated soil, laid them on the ground. We haven't been able to get into the garden in over a month.
We bought a new rain gauge and put it next to the deck so we can actually get to it after a rain. It rained and drizzled Saturday morning but then cleared enough for Hubby to put it up around 2pm. He checked it Sunday around the same time and we had gotten 3.6 inches of rain.
It rained most of the afternoon today, and now is down to a sprinkle so I slipped a plastic bag over the camera and went out to take another photo. This is the same view about 12 hours later than the above photo and after another inch of rain (actually a little over an inch). If it ever dries out, we are going to add some soil to the garden so we won't have to deal with this again.
