Our garden is nearly finished, but we have managed to keep the brocolli plants and our green peppers going with the aid of a sprinkler. Our cauliflower plants did not make it -- the soil was just too dry for them, even with use of the sprinker daily. And we have not planted our lettuce or spinach seeds; we had hoped to get a good quenching rain or two before putting them in.
Well, it looks like we have a 60% chance of rain for Wednesday, and then a 40% chance on Thursday.
Please join us in praying that this rain arrives ... and quenches our "parched" land.
UPDATE Monday 8:06pm -- the chance of rain for Tuesday night is now 40%. And the chance of rain for Wednesday is now 70%, with a 40% chance overnight Wednesday night. Please keep praying !!
UPDATE Tuesday 10:04am -- the chance of rain tonight (Tuesday) is still at 40%. But for Wednesday, we now have an 80% chance of HEAVY rain, and then a 50% chance for more rain Wednesday night. So please keep praying !! We soooooo need this rain !!
UPDATE Tuesday 8:15pm -- IT'S RAINING HERE. It is a soft gentle rain so far, but according to the radar there is a lot more coming this way tomorrow. YAHOOOO !! THANK YOU LORD !!
UPDATE Thursday morning: THE RAIN CAME. Actually, a full inch of rain fell ... and overnight everything "green'ed up" again, and we noticed that our Maples have begun to change their colors for Autumn.
