August 2008 rainfall

Our worst (driest) month since moving here over a year ago. There was water in our gauge on 2 days in August, totally 4mm. The 55 year median is 53mm. Last August we had 374mm.

Somebody has turned the tap off.

  1. Test 2…..can I still respond to your posts? I want o be sure you can see any posts from our excellent adventures in Sept.

  3. Garry,
    Once again you received more rain than we did, however as I said on Leisa’s Blog, we thank the Lord for what we got, just on 1.5 inches.
    Godd looking set up you have here by the look of things, although I lost you for awhile after you first started.

  5. we needed the rain more than usual this time around because we were still recovering from having that watertank leak in July. It was half filled from bone dry by the last good rain (mid July) and we had had practically nothing since then. Meanwhile the other tank was bearing the brunt and had dropped to 50%. I will measure accurately tomorrow, but a quick check yesterday showed all 3 tanks pretty much full now.
