So glad to see the rain!

Eugene, Oregon
June 11, 2021 10:10am CST
Rain began at about 7 AM here and will continue of and on of the next few days. Since forest fire danger is already high here in the western part of the US, rain is welcome. Of course, it does come on a weekend and will spoil some plans, but overall, it is a very good thing.

I was wondering how far south this weather will go. I know that area is in bad shape.

@much2say Well, it turned out that the decent shower we had yesterday morning was it. Now the forecast has become maybe a shower tomorrow.

I heard it has been very dry in the West so I am glad you got the rain too.

@JamesHxstatic Not looking good for fire season is it? The West has fires and the East hurricanes.

I think you needed the rain, even if it's during weekend I hope it's welcome.

Well, we really do, but the forecast fizzled and we only had one decent shower. I'm hoping for more tomorrow.

We usually get cooler when it rains, but it will be about 28 C here today and the night was warmer than usual as well

I'm hoping our rainy season holds off until I get the branches that got cut off my trees on Thursday get bagged up for the trash. Otherwise I will have a large pile of wet leafy branches.

That would be no fun at all. I hope you get it done.

The rain will really solve the fire problem. Are fires caused by high temperatures or are people setting them up?

Things get so dry that any spark will set it off. Such as from a truck dragging a chain or a careless smoker, even lightning. There is some arson too.

Are you in the western part? The entire western US is too dry. The largest reservoir in the country, Lake Mead, is at 38% level, the lowest ever measured.

Hope you get enough rain to deter the danger of fires. We have a light drizzle here today but the weekend looks pretty decent
