Drought Buster?

Not quite, but the rain is certainly welcome. The remnants of Tropical Storm Barry moved into the area this morning with rain continuing all day. It's been two months without any appreciable rain. There was very little water along the boardwalk at the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest and Four Holes Swamp was within a day or two of ceasing to flow.

Like a giant bathtub with the drain always open, if water (rain) isn't added to the top end, the water will eventually all flow out to the Edisto River. If the chorus of frogs are any indication, the wildlife doesn't mind the rain either.
