Visit from Dean

It seems that part of our 3.67 inches of rain this week can be attributed to Hurricane Dean! The weather station recorded most of that during the downpour Wednesday night. The final report from the National Hurricane Center on the storm can be found below.

Wherever it came from, we now have more than 6.5 inches for the month of August. And yes, we spent a little time here mopping up after the heavy rain. I’m sure we were not alone in that activity!
