We had Weather last night, and the next round of thunder can be heard in the distance (so this will be brief).  Extremely strong straight-line winds, heavy rains, lots of lightning, and a power outage (now  obviously back on).  At  first light, the first test of rain gauges was 1.5 inches in both "close in" gauges and 2 inches at Fox Pavilion (about a quarter mile out on the land) with water running across the near meadow's drainage.   It's been raining lightly since the last storm passed enough to make it safe to go check, too.

We needed the rain badly.  Two more inches wouldn't hurt a bit. 

But now the thunder's nearer and I need to unplug things again.
