    1985 is the gold standard around my area for driest Sept. I recorded 0.06 that month. All the CO-Op's within 40 miles of me were 0.13 or less. That was also an interesting month period. Started hot as Hades, with low 90's, then we dropped in middle of month to have 4 consecutive frosts from 15-19th with temps in mid 30's! Ended the month a -0.5 from average. BTW I am currently at 0.18 for the month so 1985 is safe.

    Was fine until first week of August when the spigot from above cut off. Late April to mid May is a pretty normal grass seeding time around here.

    I've lost about half of what I planted back in May due to the dryness.......oh well, try again next year.

    Low was 57.2 here, got a few sprinkles little after 9 pm last night, love the look of past 24 hours radar/rainfall totals, reminds me of LE orographic lift in winter

    2019 Mid Atlantic Lawn, Garden, Pool, etc. Thread

    We always hooked ours into the soffit under the eaves on the back of the house, near a window so we could watch. About 20 foot off the ground, no problems from animals, but bees LOVED them. They drained one in about 2 hours one day, you couldn't see the container from the mass of bees on it.

    ^^^This^^^, the 1/2 to 2 inches of rain falling in 30 minutes IS moisture, just 75-90% runs right off into gutters, curbs and creeks! That said, I'd take those 30 minutes after past week, where it thunders for an hour each afternoon then the deck barely gets wet.........
