Five Inches?

Or maybe closer to six?

I put this harvest bucket out on my side walkway last night (dry and empty).  This morning, after seeing the tongue of water in my basement (which NEVER happens except with a truly big “gully-washer”), I walked out and thought–hmm, maybe three inches?

And then I measured.

It is hard to get an accurate reading in my home neighborhood because of all the trees.  But this was a damn big rain.

By the way, the most accurate pronunciation of the above-quoted term is actually, gully-wahrshur.  Ya know, in case you need to pass as a local. 😉
