We are in desperate need of rain...and finally getting some. Yay rain! According to the WRAL Drought Monitor, we are still 8" behind on rain since January 1, 2007. Falls Lake, which is Raleigh's water source, is finally catching up due to a soggy week. As you can see from these Lake level graphs, the lakes are now up above where they were in September...but not where they need to be to be out of the drought. According to this page (chart shown above) on the lake levels, Falls lake is at 247.3 ft and normally should be at 251.5 ft.
As for us, we are praying the rain keeps coming. Anna is ready in her raincoat:
