rain in july

we had a good rainstorm yesterday, beginning around 5:30 or 6 in the evening.  started with a rumbling sky and dark clouds moving in.  we got quite a downpour.  staal and i were out trying to get things covered up and we both got soaked within a couple of minutes. 

storm rolling in

the ducks had a great time bathing, dabbling in puddles, and drilling in the mud as the rain was coming down.

we collected quite a bit of roof runoff in the rain barrels and holding tank and i found about 3/4" in the rain gauge this morning.

 everything is looking and smelling very fresh this morning.
