REMEMBER MAY 15, 2012. THE HEAVIEST RAIN SINCE TROPICAL STORM FAY FELL THIS EVENING with a total of 3.73 inches on Jacksonville’s Southside, and it is still falling at 11 PM. The last time our rain exceeded 3.50 inches was on August 27, 2008. That rain was more widespread and it submerged many parts of our northeast Florida counties with 5.90 inches in 24 hours.

I have been amazed to discover how many months over the past 3 1/2 years that have received less than 2 inches of rain. Thousands of dollars worth of free water has fallen from the sky this evening. Hopefully our water bills will not be as high this summer as our lawns become rejuvenated with our rainfall finally returning to normal.

And we hope these rains will extinguish the persistent swamp fires that has made breathing difficult for some folks and has made late night and early morning driving so hawardous.

      Scott, I’m polishing up my rain dance by including a few moves to keep out the hail and strong winds. The thunder I’m hearing is music to my ears. George
