We didn't get any rain round here 'till I lost my parking spot in the barn & the chopper has to sit out. Our precip deficit has been cut in half. I think you need to set something out that you really, really, REALLY don't want to get soaked & it will. Oooh, I had a thought, It'd be a great time to tear off, redeck & shingle your house if it needs it. Tearoff always angered the Rain God when I roofed.
