It has been great riding around in the pines with no puddles. One can go almost anywhere.

We have had .41 for the week and .37 since midnight. Most of the difference was between 9 and midnight last night. We did have .1 around 4PM yesterday when I was about to vacuum out my car.

Almost no rain out in Shamong, this is looking like another fake rain storm. Weathermen have been really awful this summer, we really need rain bad and a lot.

Agree, I don't know what the heck is going on but this is at least the 4th time in the past 6 weeks that there's been a 90+% chance of rain prediction the day before the event and the chance evaporates as the day of the event progresses. Last night the prediction was that it would start raining around 5 a.m. this morning and rain all day and steadily (that's for here in Mercer County). We got a little less than a 10th of an inch last night, a brief shower this morning, and nothing since. :argh:

At this point I'm praying for the remnants of a tropical depression. It's not ideal because if it's a lot of rain in a short time, a good amount will run off, but we need something to recharge the wetlands badly. There are two active depressions in the Atlantic right now, looks like there's no chance #1 will come our way but hoping that #2 pans out. Of course I don't want a direct hit with a cat 4 but if the remnants can dump 4-5 inches of rain on us over the course of 36 hours it might be a blessing.

Well, I'm very surprised, we got over an inch. It was really pounding down hard, I can tell by the sand and pine needles that washed up on my little trails. I was absorbed with finishing up my new map during the storm, but I'm pretty sure it lasted less than an hour.

Forecast for Tuesday around my neck of the woods is heavy rain with 3/4" to 1" predicted. Could finally get some bona fide precipitation.

I had something planned in the pines on Tuesday and the weather does not look promising.
