We finally got a decent rainstorm after a terribly dry January and first half of February (usually the rainiest time of year). It was the driest January in 80 years (or so I am told). Last weekend the rains finally came, and a total of 44 millimeters fell in 3 days, twice as much as the amount that fell the entire month of January. In case anyone's interested, the total rainfall for the year at Gezer so far is 300 millimeters.Our yearly average is 500, so we've only reached 60%, with the major part of the winter behind us. BUT- a big rainstorm is heading our way from the Mediterranean, and should begin falling tonight and continue for 3 days (or 40?)
