It was not actually a 40 day and 40 night event–it just seemed like it. After a dry summer, the recent soaking was certainly a change. In September, the rain gauge record 3.75 inches of rain, mostly at the end of the month. And today, October 1st, about one-fourth inch started the new month.
There were breaks in the rain today, and some boats ventured out, including this Hobie.
