Rain by the buckets
According to my colleague Frank Roylance over on the Maryland Weather blog, my community of Annapolis placed second in the raining of cats and dogs this weekend: 5.25 inches.
That was second only to North Beach, which was pounded by 6.25 inches during the 60 hours during which the rainfall was record.
I can see the results everywhere in my garden. Not a lot of damage, but so much silt washed out of my beds and onto the sidewalk and street that I'm not sure what is holding up the plants anymore.
Any other damage out there in Garden Variety land to report? And, aside from the mosquitoes, what is the benefit or detriment of all this rain so late in the summer?
We are, frankly, not used to anything but drought.
