Finally Some Rain!

Last night we finally got some rain here, thanks to Tropical Storm Tammy. Except for a couple minor sprinkles, it’s the first rain we’ve had since a brief shower from the edge of Hurricane Katrina back in August!

Update 2005-10-09: Maybe it was too much of a good thing. The airport data shows 3.23 inches of rain on the 6th and 7th. All that rain played havoc with our underground electrical feed. Yesterday morning, the major appliances wouldn’t work, and the lights in half the rooms only came on slightly, glowing a dim orange. Very odd symptoms. After a couple visits by the electic company, I now have a temporary transformer outside the house. Apparently one of the feed wires was damaged by the inundation of water. So I guess they’ll be digging soon. :(
