"August Rains"

West Bibb County Georgia

Prior to 1 January 2012  I acquired a "rain gauge" so that I could keep an adequate record of the rains so that I could plan my Sprinkler operation in an appropriate manner.

So far, through 3:00 P.M. for August 2012 my gauge has recorded 5.05 inches of rain.  I expect that the bands of rain we will experience in the next few days because of Isaac will increase the amount of measurable rain for the month of August.

I did place the gauge quite close for this photographic event.  It is always placed in an area where the impact of shrubs/trees/structures will not interfere with an accurate measurement.
