The last post sounds amusing now, after the Halloween weekend came with 3.8" of rain in 48 hours! Over 2.2 inches with the warm front and 1.5 more on the 31st. The October total of 6.35 was our first wet (above average) month in a long time. The deluge knocked down a bunch of leaves and my impromptu firewood shelter; that portion of our wood will need a while to dry, and I haven't yet dared to look at the other weakly-protected pile. Time to make a real shelter, and soon!
