No longer measure inches of rainfall. For the past 3 months, just dump the rain gauge that's filled each week. Average ~ 48"/yr. Had that by June. River and creeks are gushing and ponds are full. Day trip into the swamp was cool. Maybe once every ten years the channels are deep enough to canoe in deep. Place is teaming with life but we're only about 20 miles from a British Pub. Who'd-a thunk it. The South is way cool even in sweltering heat. Don't get me wrong, love to visit other places, but this is home. Realized something a while back, in a canoe it's 6AM, close my eyes for 5 minutes and it's 7:45. At the dentist office, it's 9:30 and I close my eyes for 5 minutes, 9:31 when their opened.
