Picked up another 2.50 inches in the @CoCoRaHS rain gauge. For the month that is 6.06 inches, think that took care of the drought.

After a couple of days with storms and lots of rainfall, it was good to have a weekend rain free. The heat and humidity will come back for the beginning of the week. So a typical summer in VA.
