We had a nice rain last night. In fact, after we went to bed, it rained even more. The bad news is that when it started, it was hailing quite a bit. I haven’t been out to check the garden yet but I won’t be surprised to see a bit of hail damage with the garden and the fruit trees.
By the time I went out and took photos, some of the hail had melted but you can still see some by the concrete. It was really raining. We so badly needed rain.
We had received 1.09″ of rain this month until it started raining last night. I forgot to look at it this morning (and I’m in the sewing room now) but here’s what it was when we went to bed.
We got right at 2″ of rain. That’s super great for us this time of year. Oh, I hope it didn’t ruin Memorial Day plans for people enjoying the long weekend.
For those who thought our weather station was confusing, here’s what all the numbers are – starting at the top left:
- Time – 9:57 p.m.
- Date – Sunday, 5/24
- Inside Temp – 70.2
- Inside Humidity – 55%
- Pressure – 28.20
- Outside Temp – 62.2
- Outside Humidity – 96%
- UV – 0
- Light – 0
- Wind – 0
- Rain – 3.03″ (that’s for the month – I can change it to daily, weekly, or yearly.)
There are a lot of things I can change but I don’t even remember what they are because these are the ones that matter to us.It reports to Weather Underground – here’s the link to what our station reports in. I love watching the data and I can compare it to what other stations are reporting in.
The closest station to me is probably about 4 miles as the crow flies and they reported 1.16″ of rain where mine reported 2.0″ of rain. Places not far at all will get 1+” of rain and we won’t get a drop.
These are the ones that are the closest to us and some of these are 20 or more miles away but ours was reporting the coolest temp, though not a lot cooler.
Probably just another time waster but I enjoy it.
