Huge rain system moving through,will rain again,they say,all day tomorrow. This same system is the remnants of the Pacific storm/huricane and will effect as far North as Chicago and the head East to New England. Fascinating. Cool,dry air behind it with a promise of a beautiful weekend.
It rained quite nicely here last night, and for a good while. The only downside was that when I eagerly ran out to see how much roof runoff was being channeled into the cistern, I realized that the inadequate opening from the gutter was blocked again. This meant a change into clothes from the hamper, a dash into the dark and a cold soaking as I detached the pipe, poked out the leaf mat from underneath, then re-attached the pipe with the cold water pouring over me.
