It was so pleasing to wake during the middle of the night only to hear rain on the roof. What is especially nice is that it is coming down very slow. This constant light mist/drizzle is allowing any moisture that we are receiving to hydrate the soil and the roots of our thirsty plants.
While you can give your irrigation a break for the next day or two, BEWARE - we are in for a big change. The weather service is predicting temperatures in the 90's-100's with Santa Ana winds by Wednesday.
While I know that we typically receive a small amount of rain in October, I, for one, like to think this was a gift from Mother Nature nourishing our plants and protecting our hillsides helping to curtail damage from any imminent fire danger and warm, dry winds.
For now, enjoy the much needed seasonal weather while it lasts!
