Pretty much nothing here. Just some drizzle but not enough to measure. Now that the rain finally stopped, the grass is drying out quickly. It's really tall in some area, like over a meter high. Once it fully dries out, the fire danger will be extreme

I see that. It's been totally dry here for over a month, but on average we get around 1" for the month of May. This looks like it might be that 1".

Went out for a ride yesterday and the ground was really hard. The tall grass I was talking about earlier was being "mowed" by a large herd of goats. Goats do a pretty good job on the grass, but they also eat anything else in their path, like trees. Goats are surrounded by an electric fence. They periodically move the fence to do another section.

The poor goats are getting rained on. It was too dark to see the rain gauge this morning but definitely over 1".

Gauge is showing 2.4” and it’s still drizzling. Very unusual for this time of year. At least it will soften up the ground for a while.

I already got two months worth of rain from the first atmospheric river. Next one hits Saturday morning just in time for the weekend. :(

At least I'm able to turn off the irrigation system for a while. It will be interesting to see if the yellowed out grass turns green again.
