I did not finish using the new riding mower in time. An off-seasonal weather pattern will have the NW coast under a damp and somewhat breezy pattern for several days, beginning today with about .30" in the bucket already. We could get another half-inch through next Wednesday, which is really wet for mid-July!
The PRISM model average at our place is just under an inch for July but it's Portland's driest month (thanks to the occasional August thundershower). We shall see how much we end up with - but it's good news for several reasons. Fire season is delayed by such soil-moistening showers, and our need for a heat-pump or other home cooling can be postponed a few more weeks!
