We got about an inch and a half of rain last night which was sorely needed. In addition to helping the gardens and fields it also raised the water level in the new pig pondlet and added water to Mystery Pond. It is named that because the dam is shaped like a question mark with the cable trolley boulder being the dot.
There was a lot of lightning. An early bolt produced a surge on the phone lines which blew out one of our surge supressors before I was able to unplug phones. We get so much lightning that I have surge supressors setup on all power, data and phone lines in series. A violent storm like that can blow out as many as three. Fortunately it didn’t get to the equipment behind the Panamax supressor.
