I was going to do this later in the year but if I wait it may be too late |
Take a guess or use your psychic powers to predict the DATE and TIME
of the first "significant" rain.
Perhaps Deanna will be judge as to when the first rain actually happens.
First prize....you win!
Second prize....you don't win

May 29 - Thursday - 5 am - sprinkling. First rain of the year.

June 13 - Saturday - 12 pm - but it looks like its going to rain.
