Default Remind me why I wanted rain?

Hi,

I know that we have had too little rain, and the crops are struggling, and
the lawn still looks like it has been Naplamed, but wouldn't some gentle
overnight rain have been enough?

All those pretty 'once in a lifetime' displays of autumn leaves are being
blown off as the trees bend from vertical to horizontal.

And there is worse to come.

Make it stop a little?

Please?

Whooooooooooooooooooo!!

and leaves that is). Unfortunately it was all of them........

Well I was lifting dahlias day before yesterday (Saturday), and despite
having had over 3 inches of rain they were still coming up clean and almost
dry.
Don't know how they will be to morrow after another inch and a half +

Suburban Surrey reports :

Saturday morning conditions -

Ground which I turned over last week has had a good soaking and is wet
down as deep as I care to look.
Ground which has lain undistrubed all summer is only showing dampness
for the first 1.5 to 2 inches.

I am hoping to see it wetter now since both Saturday and Sunday nights
delivered considerably more rain.

Seems that a plea to URG (all hail) brings results!

Been a lovely few days.

We've had just over 4 inches of rain and winds of up to 70 mph in the last
few days.
This morning I took the camera out and took a few pics, posted on
alt.binaries.pictures.gardens under "November colour"
was also lifting dahlias this afternoon and the soil still isn't wet, just
moist, still falling off easily.

Curious as i am, I tried to go to alt.binaries.pictures.gardens, but it does
not appear on my list (via News.CIS.DFN.DE)

I know a lot of URGlers use the same server. How do you access
alt.bin..........?

Yes. We do get to notice such benefits, especially as many of us use a
system of downloaded (and uploaded) packets for offline processing. You
tend to get a bit ipssde-fof if you receive twenty or thirty Svens in a
download innit.
