Low of 44 - high of 58. Slept in this morning till 8:30AM to the pitter patter of rain on my little bldg. Good and steady till about 10:30 then it stopped....just missed the flash into my dam by 10 minutes - that's all it took to fill the area to overflowing. My digital rain gauge and the NWS manual gauge measured exactly the same amount of rainfall since 7:45PM last night (.54"). Cold and breezy all day but at least the rain let up for the afternoon. Spent the day pumping water out of the reservoir into my tank. 1400 gallons by 5PM. The rain has started again tonight and I reckon the pool will fill and overflow yet again. Should have the 3000 gallon tank #1 filled by tomorrow noon. Here is a YouTube video of the success of the day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0sonA3BmS4 Won't even think about the thousands of gallons that got away this time.
