80 Acres: RAIN!!

Brief pause in the page-proof-reading to announce that it rained, and is raining, and we had 1.3 inches by 8:30 am and it's raining again.  Has been raining for the past hour and a bit more. 

Pictures at the 80acres blog.

Rain seems to be general over several counties and should lower the fire danger--dunno if it's enough yet to lift any of the reservoirs.   It's a warm Gulf-origin rain, not violent but substantial, almost like hurricane rain without the hurricane.
