No More Drought

Last week’s rain totalled anywhere from 6 to 12 inches for most of us in central Virginia (significantly less for areas further west of I-95).  The long soaking rain from a weak tropical system was just what we needed.  The newest release from the National Drought Monitor indicates that we are no longer in a drought. 

 

 Last Monday, Lake Chesdin’s water level was 11.8ft below full.  On Wednesday, Chesdin’s level was 2.8ft below full.  More rain would still help completely fill up our lakes and reservoirs, but at least now we can enjoy the sunny weather without the guilt of knowing how desperately we need rain.
