I guess the powers that be really wanted us to know, here in the coastal Pacific Northwest, that Fall has really fallen.
These photos were taken from the doorways because it was wet out there. Tom's new weather station says we have had 1.43 inches of rain since this "storm" started with light rain yesterday.
There were puddles on the pavement.
And dripping trees.
Something happened to my original post this morning. It disappeared. This is an attempt to recreate the original, but it is not nearly so clever. That post talked about the umbrella icon on the weather station console that affirmed that it was indeed raining. It showed a cloud that had stopped dripping, and indeed the rain did stop about 1:00, and I was able to get out for my walk this afternoon. With the humidity so high and the temperature at 63, I was dripping anyway.
It was dark by a little after 7:00 this evening. Boo. We need the rain, but I don't like the darkness.
The weather station shows that even the moon is dark.
