Well I was wrong and I am happy to be wrong. It did rain yesterday and it rained again today! Woohoo! We have been so dry. They were both nice rains and not downpours so what we got should have soaked in some. I forgot to put out a rain gauge but my collection tank was about 3/4 full so it was a significant amount and not just sprinkles. Yay!
My image for today is one I took over the weekend. I saw this hairy guy on a wooden retaining wall. In researching what type it is, I found it is an Eastern Tent Caterpillar which I believe is similar to what we call Bag Worms though it is not the same. Tent Caterpillars can defoliate Ornamental trees but the tree usually recovers.
