It's been raining in downtown Jackson today and what a welcome site it is! When I pulled out of the driveway this afternoon, I saw a few drops on the windshield. I have to admit, it took me a couple of seconds to find the windshield wipers! I noticed traffic in the interstate was a bit slow, too. It seems most drivers had forgotten how to drive when it rains.
I'm pleased to say more chances for rain are in the forecast, especially for the weekend. Although we would probably like to enjoy the outdoors on our day off, we desperately need the water. For the month of March, we are short 4.17 inches of rain. For the year, we are short 6.28 inches of rain. We won't make up that kind of deficit in the next few days, but at least we'll add some drops to it.
By the way, I checked out the long range forecast for Easter Sunday and it looks to be alittle on the cool side with highs in the 60s!
