Here in New England, we've had some really powerful rain storms recently. We were fortunate -- no flooding or no power outages -- we just got wet. It rained last Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. We didn't put the gauge out till Sunday -- but it filled on Sunday, then again on Monday. That's 5 inches each day. A lot of rain.
All that rain did bring on some March flowers.....the first crocuses of the season have popped up. Kind of blurry -- but a definite sign that spring is coming.
