Huzzah! We finally got a nice soaking rain at FurCentral! When I left work yesterday it started coming down in buckets. By the time I reached home, however, the ground was barely damp. Typical. Kitty and I then settled in with dinner and tv. After the show was over we shut off the set and heard a dull roar coming from the patio. I opened the door and was greeted with sheets of rain pounding the patio cover. Fling and Boot had been outside and were completely freaked out. Boot panicked and ran into the front through the deluge. Stupid cat. I put a 5-gallon bucket under the downspout from the patio cover and it filled within 15 seconds. There was actually standing water in the yard. Finally! The ground got a good soaking. Now it's time to quickly get out there and throw down some seed. Oh. And even though we got less than half an inch according to the weatherman, that was the most rain we've seen in almost a year.
