May has been tricky this year. We started out with clear blue skies, and for the most part above average temperatures. But the last eight days have been a much different story. While it hasn't come in abundance each day, it has rained on and off - sometimes very heavy, sometimes just a steady mist. But the fact remains that it has soaked us. The eight day total is 3.45", which is 69% of our May average.
Some Mid-May Stats:
(May 1 - 17)
Mean Temp: 59° (2.6°)
Precip Total: 3.69"

As of today, I've mowed the lawn 4 times. The chives are looking beautiful - I'll have pictures of them on my monthly summary. Not a cloud in the sky today...I'm looking for some time to dry out!
