    An inch or two in Atlanta would shut it down for a week.

    Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Are you talking about reseeding the whole lawn or you have a spot that is deteriorated that you want to repair? I don't have a lot of details on where you live or what's going on with your lawn, but depending on where you live, I would recommend reaching out to one of the agriculture co-op extension programs and chat with them. My experience has always been good with them, and since I'm in PA, I use the Penn State co-op extension program. You can send them a soil sample, and then they can tell you what the soil needs. I think most will agree, you need to identify the problem before throwing time, effort, and whole lot of money for nothing to try and resolve the issue. Most lawns have a multitude of problems and if you are willing to go through all that work, then I suggest getting a handle on the issue first before dropping all that coin.

    .47" out of that line of storms last night. More than I thought would ever happen.

    Wind whipping the side of the house with rain. Radar says 49 mph winds, but down on the ground it gusted to 18mph. Might have briefly had a bit of hail tapping the windows, but not seeing anything on the ground as evidence. Rain rate up to 4.15"/hr for a couple of minutes at the beginning. Glad its not going to last an hour... Got .43" so far.

    So far, I'm impressed. Thunder in the distance and getting closer.

    You got a much better chance of measurable precip than I do. You might, but doubt it, get a rumble of thunder.

    58 and misty drizzle. Nothing showing on the rain gauge yet.
