Down in Athens we took a direct hit from megastorm on Friday, but there was very little rain associated with it. Then last night we got thumped pretty hard again, this time with more and heavier rain, but it was still just a quick here-and-gone storm, no steady rain like we need. I guess any little bit would help, though.
In Tennessee, we seem to walk a fine line every year with rain fall, or the lack thereof. Our mountain streams need it in the summer, some of our tailwaters need excessive rains yet others seem to thrive during droughts. With the current heat wave....I don't think anybody would mind a few inches of rain here and there. The best we can muster right now are just spotty showers, where it might drown my neighbor yet totally miss my yard.
