|Sept. 8th the radar warned us all|
It is a shame that those in the city will face flooding and wet basements. We are high and dry, surrounded by wetland that catches the water and purifies it.
Also a shame, lots of fairs are on this weekend. I'm happy, as I've spent 4 hours on 'paperwork' for my volunteer group. While computers were supposed to limit our papers, I find it increases it.
We had a total rainfall for
August of 1.7mm. Truly.
Sept. 4 22mm
Sept. 7 5mm
Sept. 8 33.5 a.m.,
Total September: 111.5mm.
Today we had a huge rain warning across south eastern Ontario. I bought a rain gauge mid-August, as I could not believe the lack of rain.
|Lots of warnings|
|I took this photo at 1:11, by 1:52 we had 53mm|
but in the morning we had 33.5mm
|In both official measurements!|

What a dump of rain! We had 30mm this morning, 5mm yesterday, 22mm last Tuesday. The rain gauge is up to 55mm this afternoon after I dumped at at noon, but the storm isn't over yet. We are happy to see the rain, living as we are on a wetland. It ought to be wet!
