Why Won’t It Rain at My House?!

Twice yesterday I got caught in a deluge–once down by Vandy and once in Bells Bend. We got no rain at the house all day yesterday. We haven’t had rain in three weeks, I’d guess, except for a very light shower on Saturday.

We really, really need a good soaking rain.

No flooding, though, please!

  1. There’s just no pleasing you is there? ;-)

    We didn’t get any rain in East Nash, either, and the azaleas are definitely showing it. The hydrangeas, curiously, are eating it up. I thought they liked to stay well-watered?

  2. Yeah, my East Nashville garden needs water yet I was in the middle of a thunderstorm at work yesterday. I consider this to be backwards.

  3. Yeah, LOL, I got wet at Bells Bend too, but not a drop in my yard, which desperately needs it.

  4. You should know by now the best chance for rain is after you wash your car. So, tomorrow, get out there and wash it. Invite the neighbors. A rainstorm will not be able to resist that many clean vehicles.

  5. I know, I should’ve.
    I was the ponytailed late 50s white guy near the back in a red shirt.
    And I probably stank to high heaven as I had arrived early and walked the trails for 45 minutes prior. LOL

  6. So one month you want it to rain the next you whine that it isn’t?

    I feel your pain, my mother’s vegetable garden is dead.

    Of couse. LOL Just like how we are now whining about how much we miss winter, and in winter how badly we want it to be summer.

    I was thinking this exact thing this morning, driving to work in my (un-air-conditioned car): Remember back in January when you were dreaming about July? Be careful what you wish for.

  9. Tell me about it. At work (Hendersonville), we had a deluge; went home to Robertson County & had to water the tomato plants before they burned up.

  10. Same here in west Nashville. Here’s the trick: Get yourself one of those faucet-splitter things, and run two sprinklers. You really only have to do it every other day on flowerbeds (although extra watering is also good). I usually run mine right about 6:30 PM, so the flowers have all night to sit in the damp soil before it heats up again.

    Our lawn is really crispy, though, which I can’t believe given the spring we had. Pretty unreal year, this one. Remember all that snow?!

  11. We haven’t had a drop in Memphis. It keeps missing us. It’s absolutely miserable down here. A friend in Columbia MO was complaining the other day that it was non-stop rain and I just wanted to die.

  12. I have a rain barrel in the back yard, but 55 gallons realllly doesn’t last very long.
